Apple Q&A on location services

 

My opinion on the issue:  The GPS feature was a significant factor in our selection of these devices.  Despite the media induced confusion (which has spread to congress), the iPads/iPhones are working appropriately for a GPS device and are not using the location data in any inappropriate or unexpected ways. In fact, a portion of what the iPhone location service is doing was mandated by e911 requirements from Congress and the FCC.
