Where I have a problem with this is when law enforcement starts using the historical data in the database as direct proof. The government shouldn't be allowed to say "Based on information provided by XYZ Tracking, your car was in the McDonalds parking lot when it was robbed so you must have committed the crime" without some validity checking. Something like archiving all the scanned photos with embedded date/location info for X months. Of course the gov't would have to pay for all that data retention, but that's the only way to combat the inevitable errors in these huge databases.
