The issue is about when this information is exposed. If it's exposed while the user's actively looking at the site, that's what the user has consented to. If it's exposed while the user's walking around maybe not even looking at their phone, we can't assume they've consented using the normal geolocation prompt.

(An IP address is usually PII, not SPII.)
