Recently, Google Maps made it mandatory for its users to accept Google’s new crowdfunding feature to allow them to use its turn-by-turn navigation feature.
Google started displaying a message that reads: “As you navigate, Google collects details, such as your GPS location and the route you took. This data can be used to make information, including real-time traffic conditions and disruptions, visible. for others and help them find the fastest route. ”
This means that when a user uses Google Maps turn-by-turn navigation, the application collects data to help reflect the world in real time for everyone. The data that is used includes the GPS location, the mode of transportation, the navigation details such as the route you took, the data from the sensors of your devices, such as the barometer.
If users disagree with the crowdsourced navigation data, then they will not get turn-by-turn navigation or voice feedback. Instead, they will get step-by-step instructions in static form.
