Apparently, some models TomTom GPS sends your GPS data back to the central office. TomTom then feed this back to local government and law enforcement authorities.
Now they say they will stop doing that. I think they should be sued. They should have put some note in plain sight, saying that using this device may provide your speed to the police. If you are thinking that speeding is against the law, it kills, etc. You won’t get an argument from me, but I don’t think companies should be providing information about your behavior to law enforcement without you first knowing that could happen.
Saw this story over at Slashdot.
