The database that contains all this info is associated with iTunes. Do you really think it would be that hard for Apple to pull a copy of it?...
Also, think youre wrong with yuor GPS comment. AFAIK GPS is passive reception only. Aka you receive multiple wide area GPS transmissions from various satellites and the GPS itself calculates where you are. There is no feedback nor tracking possible for GPS, again AFAIK.
