Just wondering (since this is electronic tech) if I can turn my TomTom on while in flight.

Just thinking it would be cool to turn it on and see if it captures a speed/put in destination address etc.

Maybe I should ask the captain so I don't end up in :jail:

If all else fails, READ THE INSTRUCTIONS in the Airline Magazine.

They are NOT allowed to be used in flight. Don't know why? They
are recievers NOT transmitters.

That being said, I always took mine and used it in a private airplane,
and it never affected any of the electronics. The airplane also has
a GPS........

The top speed in my Garmin shows that I went 600 mph.....and that was
in a commercial airplane.

Anyway, do as I say, NOT as I have done, and don't use it in a
commercial flight.

Thanks, just thought it would be cool to do/see the MPH etc. I won't worry about it then. I guess they don't want anyone to freak out @ the speed.

I know a few commercial pilots. That being said, the electronics on the plane are all of a different frequency than those used for public use. The main reason it is stated it will interfere with the plane is so you don't bother other passengers. If the use of personal electronic equipment did screw up a plane, how did 2 planes find the world trade center?

I know several people that have done this. It should not affect the flight at all. The highest I have seen was 594 MPH. You are allowed to use iPods, iPads, Kindles and the like on a plane. So why not a GPS???

A while back, I was talking with one of my old roommates and best friends who has been a commercial pilot since we got out of school. After a few minutes of chatting, he said "Alright, I need to get off the phone...time to land." I say "What?!?!? I didn't think you could use your phone while flying!!!!" He says "No...YOU can't use your phone while flying." I say give it a shot...it's always easier to get forgiveness than permission. :)

With these new iPhones, is it best to tun them off when you go through the scanner?

I can now communicate and take over the pilot controls with my iPhone. :devilgrin:

There is an app for that...
