GPS jammer against tracking devices

Wonder how long before business lobby groups have these things outlawed?

Is it just GPS or does it affect cell phones too?  I know there is a way for them to track your cell phone as long as it is on and within range of a tower.  I'm assuming a jammer would make that form of tracking ineffective.  Also, does anyone know if it has actually been tested and works?

Cellular signals and GPS are two different things.

I think some confusion has been introduced in the last few years by referring to the location devices in cellphones as "GPS" when they really aren't.

...they can still roughly triangulate your position using your phone and the nearest three or more towers to you. ...

This, I believe, is the technology used in all cellphone pseudo-GPS.

"Real" GPS is a receive-only system where your GPS unit picks up signals from several satellites and triangulates its own position.  I don't think this has been incorporated into cellphones.

Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

IIUC, tracking devices sometimes placed on cars by the police receive GPS signals and then retransmit their position on some frequency monitored by the police. The jammer would prevent this device from getting a fix on its position, so it would either go silent or transmit some sort of "error" code. Your vehicle could probably still be tracked down by cops using direction-finding equipment tuned to the tracking device's output frequency.

On the other hand, if a tracking device is attached to your vehicle, you're already in some trouble: apparently you're on someone's radar. If you take countermeasures without actually going into hiding, they presumably know where you live, and can reinstall the tracking device or take other measures.

Cell phone tracking ruled out, Justice Department spies foiled
By Leslie Poston
 Privacy laws got what has become an all too rare boost recently when the Supreme Court thwarted the spy tactics of the Justice Department. The court ruled against the Justice Department’s desire to track you using your cell phone without probable cause or a warrant.

That’s right, people with iPhones and other phone with GPS locator systems can breath a little easier this week. Of course, there is no guarantee that the powers that be won’t turn to spying like they did with AT&T’s wiretapping snafu to get what they need outside the courts, but at least the average citizen can then go after them for breaking the law. Theoretically, anyway.

The courts ruled that the desire of the Justice Department to track you on your phone violated the Fourth Amendment, which protects us against unlawful search and seizure. don’t think you are completely save from prying eyes, however. There is a reason I keep the GPS locator program off off off on my phone.

Some malls are now tracking what stored you go into to make purchases using the GPS features on many phones. Private detectives can still find careless wayward husbands and wives via GPS if they were silly enough to have it on when they went into the Lazy Q motel. Your regular police department can still find cars using the increasingly popular GPS systems in them. Even some driver’s licenses have locator chips in them in the form of a digital id these days.

With all of the location based ways to track us, monitor and generally watch our every move, it’s not surprising that conspiracy theories are on the rise. It’s reassuring to know that the Supreme Court is trying to allow private citizens a last oasis of privacy, however; it may not be enough. The rest of the world will eventually be forced to accept what the digital generation already knows: there is no such thing as true privacy anymore, and we need to be prepared for the increasing invasion from governments and advertisers.

Hi, nellschmertz,

Welcome to our forum.

I have read both of your 2 posts to date; and am unable to understand what you are trying to say. Could you please post in English?


All the Best,

I just went to the site where this little gem is supposed to be for sale:

This product is out of stock, and not coming back.

:(

But I did find this:  http://www.dhgate.com/wholesale/gps+blocker.html
