They don't need it. They want it.
They're also giving you advanced notice and asking your permission to collect it.
You don't have to agree to it unless you want to use their service.

I suspect they gather historical data for their own internal use. They probably use this data to evaluate route generation and to find ways to improve upon their already outstanding navigation assistance.

Should you be paranoid about it? Probably not, but that's your call.
