17. Interference

Actually, it's the opposite, it is the cheap, relatively inaccurate and/or old GPS devices that are less affected by LightSquared.

Though comprehensive testing clearly showed that LightSquared's original proposed network configuration caused widespread GPS interference across virtually all range of GPS devices, essentially rendering accurate GPS unavailable in virtually the whole of the populated United States.

Even LightSquared's hastily conceived second configuration failed miserably, causing measurable interference to consumer GPS devices and allowing the government to conclude that it will cause unacceptable interference to the more senstiive high precision GPS receivers used in industry, science and aviation.
