[AVWEB]4G Broadband May Jam GPS

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Quote:
The GPS industry is warning that a proposed broadband Internet network could effectively jam GPS signals. Further, it says it has data showing that any of the anticipated 40,000 (yes, four zeroes) transmitters can make a Garmin 430 go dark at a range of five miles. GPS World calls the proposal by LightSquared "disastrous" and warns of major problems for all kinds of GPS-reliant devices.

I've personally never heard of this site so I dunno how credible it is.

It makes sense. The article states:
Quote:
The transmitters will use the L Band 1 (1525 MHz—1559 MHz), which is right next door to where the GPS frequencies of 1559—1610 MHz work their navigation magic.
The issue is that in the real world the frequency's are not exactly what they are stated as being. Also there is a high probability that the GPS antenna will be picking up on the 4G signal due to it being designed to pick up very similar frequency. Sort of like how a microwave can effect cordless phones / wifi.

Perhaps we could hack this and get our non-4G devices to connect to the 4G network with onboard GPS?

This better not happen, I'll be pissed. I know of like 4 places to go without the use of my TomTom.

You might (lol) just be saying this in fun, but seriously, there are a lot of people who probably can't get 15 miles from their driveway without GPS, and that is just sad.

The only thing my GPS is nice for is showing me my average speed (so I know how much I speed) and seeing how randomly I drive through the city.

I can't stand using it for directions, if you have any common sense you should know how to get around your city. When we go on trips and rent a car I'll use since in other cities I don't know the major roads or bridges. But if its where you live and you rely on your GPS for everything ... :Facepalm:

GPS is used for sooooo much more than consumer GPS units. I'd rather 4G disappear than GPS.

My mom got me a TomTom for Christmas. I've used it I think three times, only because I'm a new driver and I haven't driven (or necessarily paid attention to) where a few places are. Once was just to test it out, driving to my girlfriend's house, another was to drive my car to a Subaru dealership, and the third was to go to a music venue that just opened up and was on the other side of town where I never go.

But it has been having signal issues and I do live in a fairly large area. I wonder if this is the cause of it.
