When the first reports of the M9 overheating came to light, many forum users began a collective joke-round calling the phone a popcorn machine, a grill, and other unoriginal remarks that we’ve seen with every device that presents sign of overheating, from gaming consoles to graphics cards.

Look At What Your Phone Has Been Recording With Location Cache Viewer for Android
By now, we are sure taht you are either skeptical, paranoid, or completely freaked out about the news regarding the massive amounts of data being recorded by your device. It really didn’t take long for some developers to start working on a solution to this problem, but as with every problem, the biggest concern is always understanding what you are dealing with. XDA member mopodo has written a very nice app in response to the newly discovered trait. Location Cache Viewer, as its name rightfully implies, will allow you to see all the information that your device is recording about you (whether you allow it or not). This app will provide you with information about your location, phone signal, and even wifi hotspots and connections. As mentioned, this is only the beginning of fighting back to restore our privacy, regardless of whether you agree or not with practices of this sort. Just try the app out for a while and see what you can discover about yourself.
Please leave some feedback for the developer in case you run into any bugs or simply have suggestions.
Simple app that lets you see what locations have been cached on your android device.
You can take a look at them in a list (text) and on map.
You can find more information in the application thread.
