Re: Airline Carryon

For U.S. carriers, GPS devices are not "approved personal electronic devices."  Pretty much anything
with an RF receiver or transmitter is prohibited by the carriers' rules.  Yet they allow laptop PCs and PDAs (without wireless capability or with wireless disabled), MP3 players, and handheld game consoles, all of which emit LOTS of RFI.....  go figure.  Haven't seen any clear rules on digital cameras, but they can be quite noisy, as well.

What no-GPS rule?
I've always been told by cabin staff that it's OK to use GPS.
