 It's not a foolish belief, it's a marketing plan: if you won't provide real-time identified usage data to our marketing department, you can't use our maps. All part of today's surveillance capitalism. Notice that the truly free map sources (such as OpenStreetMap) don't have those restrictions; Google isn't free (between collecting marketing data from end-users and charging 3rd parties to use Google maps to support their business).

It's the end users who have that foolish belief (believing those cellphone carrier ads), who get lost when they drive out of cellular service range.
