Different agencies and different people use widely varying standards to that are far short of a warrant authorized search.

Again, recall how your Cell phone is constantly and persistently communicating a tremendous amount of information. https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2012/04/local-cops-following-big-brothers-lead-getting-cell-phone-location-data-without

Police agencies can get away with this, because it’s not something they use as evidence. They do it, and then there’s no paper trail. A good judge could pick up on it, but I’m not sure what they could do about it. They could cut the perp loose, but I doubt they’d do that.

Local Cops Following Big Brother's Lead, Getting Cell Phone Location Data Without a Warrant

I suspect getting locations is taught as a matter of course these days, along with the practice of shooting the family pet, justified or not, when raiding a domicile.

The cell phone providers must have their feet held to the fire regarding releasing any information.

Another reason to not get a phone with gps, or disable it if it does.

I’ll probably get picked up one of these days. I rarely communicate on a cell phone and then it’s all in a terse code. “OK, two bunches of green onions and some broccoli.”

Wouldn’t most of them be 911 calls?

It should be possible to spoof such information, to make it appear that the same cell phone is in several locations at once. Of course this would probably be illegal, if they thought to make it illegal while making cell phone tracking possible.
