include last known position, travel between two or more set
positions, and timestamps.

insurance companies, and also for the solving of crimes.
most smartphones (i.e. Nokia N82 and Nokia E71, Blackberry, iPhone,
Samsung, HTC etc.) offer an accurate SATNAV system in your hand. These smartphones offer you all the
usual SATNAV features, plus the option to walk to your destination
(rather than drive).

embed the GPS info into the photos taken with the mobile. As a
result the photo metadata can reveal the actual coordinates of the
place where the photo was taken.
