iOS6 has Advertising tracking “On” by default…

The upgrade to iOS 6 for iPads and iPhones has a setting which allows “advertisers” to track your postion and this setting is, by default, enabled.  To find this “feature” go to Settings > General > About > Advertising.  You need to turn the switch “On” to turn this off?
