From the recent report, an accusation has made against TomTom, one of three major players in our GPS products market. TomTom was using its technology to collect its customers driving data on the road to various organization, such their driving speed, where they drive, and where to the most. Those data was sold to various organizations, and in turn, those various organizations also sold these data to somewhere else. For instance, the local police department, traffic unit. Base on these data collected, the government can take advantage of raise revenue by writing tickets. They can set up a speed detecting point where the speeding happen the most. What do you think?
