I don't think anybody wants to challenge your preference of having it removed. It is nice to hear the opinion and reasoning from others about something to perhaps get a new view on it. That's why people are asking you about your reasoning for paying to remove something. It is something we did not understand and therefore are curious.So, I prefer the tech be removed. Why anyone cares or wants to know why is fascinating to me. We have no idea what the full capabilities of spy tech is as much of that is classified. So yes, naive. What's the problem if I have nothing to hide? That's the whole point.
Having heard your reasoning, I for one just wanted to point out one aspect of it that doesn't sound right to me - that being GPS on its own revealing any information. As PBD said, a separate transmitor is required for that. But of course, any time you connect to the internet with a device that alone reveals something about your position and one should not count in Canon having either perfect security or perfect morals.
The point was just that GPS alone is not the culprit. Connecting to a network is, especially combined with undesirable software.
