Google Maps for iOS may violate European data protection law

Ars Technica:

When downloading the Google Maps iOS app, users are initially met with location data sharing information. “Anonymous location data will be collected by Google’s location service and sent to Google, and may be stored on your device,” users are warned. And, as Hansen notes, Google has already made the decision to agree for you. Simply “accept & continue” without another glance, right?
