In the location mode you could tell it to use a combination of one of the 
following 1. GPS, Wi-Fi and mobile networks 2. Wi-Fi and mobile networks and 
3. only mobile networks. I will have to look into how and what exactly it 
sends to Google in case you choose to report location data.

Cell phone users get tracked no matter what. The only consolation is that you 
don't know about it.
