    First, it is NOT a crime to report the location of an officer. If you think it is, you need to read up a bit on "public domain".
    Second, the feature is handy for multiple reasons.
    1) to allow drivers to move over into one of the lanes to the left because the "police report" may be that one has someone stopped and many states have "Move Over" laws.
    2) the reaction of many drivers when seeing a cop is to slam on the brakes. Knowing ahead of time allows you to position yourself to allow for bad reactions from other drivers, like those speeding who may be hauling something that does not react well to having the brakes slammed on.

    As prior law enforcement, I have no problem with the issue. Many times, sitting on the side of the road was just a deterrent and having people slow down because I was there was simply the point. It had the affect I intended so what do I care. Hell, in my area, half the departments even announce on the news where they were having speed traps set up that morning. It's simply a deterrent.
