Any knowlege of this? As in "does it work"?

It should. According to the ad, it transmits a 1/10 watt signal that overrides the weak satellite signal, so that the GPS can't hear raw information.
Note the range is less than 50 feet. That would be enough to foil a unit in your car, but others would be temporarily affected, unless they are flowing with you in traffic. Some movie theaters reportedly have similar devices on cell phone bands to prevent interruptions to the entertainment. It's all illegal, AFAIK.

BTW, Prison wardens are asking the FCC for legal cellphone jammers to stop inmates form using smuggled phones. There's a lot of debate, because there would be 'collateral damage.'

You aren't alone there, brother, that's one reason I'm already off the grid. Our gov's been trying to back door RFID for a couple years now, and as it becomes more "acceptable" to our nation's sheople, they will come running to get theirs.

Yeah, the guns are fine, but my cross-bows don't give away my position as quickly, heh, heh! I've always been glad I studied more than just my particular MOS while I was in the USMC. SERE schools and more were a big help in (more or less) securely going off-grid. J.J. Luna has been a big help in covering tracks, too: http://www.howtobeinvisible.com/

"Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither and lose both." Benjamin Franklin

So what are you doing that's so different from the rest of us that's not accepting it??? I doubt there's little any one person can do so I'm interested to know.
If everyone thought that way, there would be nothing ever done and we would all be willingly led to our demise at the end of our "useful" lives.

Perhaps if it comes to that, I'll invent such a device that tricks the device into believing it's following a particular route at specific times of the day to make it LOOK like you're going somewhere, but nowhere the distance you're really going, and definitely not where you're really going. Maybe make it think the vehicle is traveling at the outer edges of the atmosphere across continents at Mach 4. Wouldn't that be a hoot.... XD

Mac......Kind of a tinfoil hat for the bus.......I dig it! Seriously, there are a lot of smart people out there. Electronics can be defeated, by-passed or fed incorrect info.

Thank you, Papabear!

Thank all of you who serve, have served, and you who support those who have served and still serve! I salute you!

The people I've met and things I've learned from it I wouldn't trade for anything in this world. I consider it an honor and a privilege to have served and defended those things I believe our country SHOULD be standing for, and I will STILL defend them to the death, be it overtly or covertly.

Many have lost their lives to protect what I hold dear. Some were my personal friends. I'll not let their deaths have been in vain!

NEVER FORGET THEM OR THEIR FAMILIES!

Semper Fi and Godspeed, Warriors!

Re: A money saving invasion of privacy?

I like the idea of Ident Chips. I just believe that they should have a 6inch read range.

In the San Fransisco bay area, we have Fastrak for paying of bridge tolls. Some wiseass came up with the idea to put up readers all over the bay to allow them to see how traffic was flowing, and to advise alternate routes during congestion. It got mutated into these guys pointing out people to the cops for speeding. As it turns out, if you put the Fastrak devise into an Anti-static Harddrive bag and fold over the opening, your Fastrak cant be read by the readers... ^.^

Can you do something like that for the GPS?
