Position information is becoming a huge emergency service feature, with a GPS enabled phone, exact coordinates can be given to a 911 operator at the time a call is placed, this information would also be readily available to any American government security organization, the newly passed Patriot Act by US Congress and George W. Bush gives them authority to use this information and almost anything else in a corporate or private database concerning you.
