Am I just a little paranoid?

Yes, you're a little paranoid. It can share your "favourites" (i.e. POI) via your login, and you might be able to sms/text your favourites too and so on. It can use both the GPS and the wifi connection for positioning, and it can share via both wifi and mobile network. The installing of shortcuts is boiler plate. It means you can favourite stuff as far as I can tell, and pairing and so on is also something you can do in the app. Most things are so you can do it in the settings, not that it will automatically create shortcuts, start pairing via bluetooth and so on.

I have been using HERE for a few weeks and it works great. After I downloaded it set it to work off the Internet only. I am not sure what it does when WiFi is present.

HERE so far has worked great for me.
