GLONASS will spy on me on the Sony Xperia S and Xperia Ion too?
Hi guys! I remember that the story alike was concerning the iPhone 4S and this Russian navigation system, and now Sony announces the same. I want to purchase one of those Xperia smartphones in the future so can I make it safe from spying on me?
According to the statements of the Sony, new Xperia S and Xperia Ion will be equipped with the latest chipsets with the support of both GPS and GLONASS navigation. Those systems in combination will grant the double times faster location finding and make the overall operation of the navigational feature more reliable and easy to use in places where only GPS usage had not so good results.
The story you have mentioned was indeed about iPhone 4S and its GLONASS support. It is quite dangerous when your smartphone has such powerful tracking system with 55 satellites (GPS + GLONASS). So to maintain your privacy and avoid being tracked by your Xperia with GLONASS support may become your top priority after you buy any among Xperia S or Xperia Ion.
