Unless something has changed, your mobile can be tracked even if its GPS is off. It triangulates on cell towers with an accuracy of something like 50m. The capability was standardized to provide location information with emergency calls. Whether this location information is available to Google applications is another question, but I wouldn't short-sell evil.
