I have recently been looking into the location awareness of Android. I tend to turn off such things (and other tracking) yet it regularly notifies me of the weather in my location despite WIFI and BT being off (well, from a UI perspective anyway). Although the notification can be blocked, it will obviously not stop the hidden tracking that is clearly going on.

I am aware that Google's core business model is based on the harvesting of individuals' data, but this is just too blatantly dishonest. The walled garden of the more fruit based provider is not something which appeals to me.
It goes without saying
