    How about a real capture, with no malfunctions, taken while flying on a KLM Boeing 747, over Las Vegas at 621mph ?

    I've done the same thing, on the way from NC to TX. It was using destinator... it was really neat to see the roads flying by so fast! and I only had 5-6 sats as well...

    You had better check with the airline before using a GPS device inside of the airplane. If you are caught you could be in some serious trouble.

    Proposed carputer:

    - Commell LV-650 mobo 128MB WinXP->CF
    - Custom ctrl board (8ch ADC)
    - Custom Delphi front end/hw ctrl software
    - Mot M12 GPS (on COM1)+Maps
    - 15" dash (non-inverter p/s hack)
    - Remote control (IR to COM2)
    - USB drive MP3 upload

    *if*

    Any equipment thats /really/botherd by other equipment / cellphones is badly constructed and unshielded, not what you commonly find in planes.

    Heart rate monitor, yup a cell phone sending a registration can affect them, but only for a second.

    old cell phones threw out RF at much higher levels and could even cause headaches if used for extensive periods of time, I had a friend who used his motorola batman phone with a ups lead acid battery, and yeah he complained of headaches........
