What about access points which are set to hide the SSID?

You have to provide your router's MAC address with your corresponding street address and location on Google Maps for this to work; let the conspiracy theories begin!

I'm pretty sure this is how they do it anyway just driving around in a truck as if they were going buy SSID's 80% of them would be called "linksys" and be useless.

They must drive around gathering the MAC address'.
