Default google maps4 - application permissions

Please Login to Remove!

I never paid much attention to the application permissions, so, i cant tell, how it was setup previously, but, when I yesterday installed google maps 4.0.x,, i was amazed that the program want full access to everything on my phone, including phone, key injection, etc. etc.
Including many things which are completely unrelated to the function of maps.

i then set the permissions to soemthing appropriate by guessing what should be ok, and alle things I suspect as unneccesary to "ask".

However, the program refuses to start, and asks again to get 100% access to all functions.

I then deleted it from the BB.

I think this is a bad idea to refuse to start without full permissions - this makes me suspicious.

Does anyone know, where I can read how, and, what information google maps will send to the mothership ?
