Franken concerned about GPS information use

WASHINGTON, D.C. (KFGO AM) -- A Minnesota lawmaker has re-introduced a bill meant to regulate how companies use the personal information of drivers who rely on electronic maps and GPS to find their way from place to place.

Senator Al Franken says the issue first came to light last year, after an announcement by Onstar.

The Location Privacy Protection Act would require in-car navigation, GPS or other mapping app providers to tell customers what data they collect, how they use it, and if it will be shared with third parties.
