There is no reason to track our GPS position every second of the day for 911 purposes. Phones could be easily designed to start collecting GPS position only after you start dialing 911 and only while you are talking to the operator (when you really need help).
It is quite clear that collecting position updates every second and 24/7 serves only one purpose: advertising. Companies can now send you thousands of location based adds to your phone - restaurants, coffee shops, gas pumps... where does it end?
