    Sorry if this thread may seem kind of useless but I wanted to clarify that GPS Sat Navs ARE allowed on airplanes as long as they don't transmit (Which most can't anyways)

    Here's my ONE XL on an airplane. 2 small vids. It's cool to have this onboard an airplane since you know exactly where you are and how far you are away from your destination. Everyone around me was like "Wow! is that where we are now?" Even a flight attendant was interested in my TomTom. Ohh and if you try this on an airplane and you see that you have no GPS signal, you have to wait quite a bit for the device to find enough satellites while moving at 500MPH. It took me almost 5 minutes to pick up a valid signal the first time.

    And here's a scan I made of the "allowed electronics" on an airplane.
