Opinions?
That warning is a generic message that pops up when disabling any system app. Since no other apps depend on Ingress, you shouldn't have any issues disabling it. You would only have issues if you disable an app that is a dependency of another app -- for instance, if you disable the Weather app, the Droid Command Center will malfunction because it depends on the Weather app for its weather functionality. (Of course, if you don't use the Droid Command Center, you could just disable them both.)
