There's no way of knowing that, as it can be tracked passively.

AFAIK there's only two tracking methods.
The one used by the cops where they work with the mobile phone networks and use triangulation from the network to locate the phone. - This method cannot be identified or logged or stopped.

The one adopted by googlemaps where you agree to the service and periodically tell googles servers where you are. In this case you can opt of of the service: http://www.google.com/support/mobile/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=136650
