Centimeter accuracy may be right around the corner tho, using the same GPS chips we do now. :Look into GRID.
Traffic: If you're physically moving (for example, traveling in a car), your iOS device will periodically send GPS locations and travel speed information in an anonymous and encrypted form to Apple, to be used for augmenting a crowd-sourced road traffic database.Popular Near Me: Your iOS device will periodically send locations of where you have purchased or used apps in an anonymous and encrypted form to Apple to improve a crowd-sourced database.

Valued at $460 US each? Gosh, they may have made more profit from "stealing iPhone designs" than some Android licensees.
Republic Wireless was offering such a plan too at one point. I didn't search to see if they still do.
