    Google keep a activity of everywhere you go.
    And everything you do

    Do you ever go to Google and to google activities.
    And delete all the activities from the Beginning of time.

    If you do not.
    It keeps a history of everywhere you go.
    And what you do.
    And who you visit on your phone.
    It can be used in court against you if you ever do anything wrong.

    I complained to google.
    But they don't care.
    They are there to let everybody know where you are so they can put ads on you.
    And try to get you to do surveys.

    If you turn google activites offf.
    a lot of the functions of your phone will not work.

    Can it tell if you're on a riding lawn mower versus a motorcycle?

    No, but they can probably give the quickest route

    I just went to check the activity of the Google account associated with my phone and there was nothing there. I guess I told them before to not keep it. So I guess that means Google is the only one who gets to see it. Looks like all I told them is "I don't want to know what activities of mine you've been tracking."

    I usually turn off Google location history but it comes back on sometimes. I notice the battery drain. I am traveling this week so I turned it on but I thought it was weird that at highway speeds it knew I was riding my motorcycle and not in the truck.

    A tilt/level sensor. Pretty simple

    I read that Google Maps uses any sensors that are available on your phone to track your movements, not just location.

    So it should be pretty easy to determine the difference between traveling by motorcycle or by car from the differences in acceleration and braking, vibration, and perhaps even engine/wind/road noise (though the latter is kind of scary if so).
