Did you know that navigation apps don’t actually need to track your location or store your data to work? Google Maps is notorious for finding ways to secretly track your every move, but it doesn’t have to be that way. There are map apps out there that care about your privacy.

Though I knew about Google spying nature but this is a kind of new thing to me. I am going to disable Google maps on my new phone..

If your mapping data provider is good then switch otherwise nothing beats Google Maps when you're at nook and corner of a place and you don't know the direction. I disabled Location tracking in google account, so no more precise location tracking but maps work fine.
