GPS hack responsible for US drone capture in IRAQ

GPS signals were spoofed with false coordinates and our drone happily landed where they wanted it to.

Easiest Way to get Lattitude and Longitude from Google Maps

1. Browse to Google Maps and include the place you want coordinates for

2. Right-click on the exact spot on the map you want the lat & long for and select "What's Here"

The page title and the search box will change to that location's latitude and longitude.

That's it! smile

"LightSquared Is Doomed"

First Android Dedicated GPS Unit

I guess this should not go in the smartphone forum since it is Android but does not have a phone. The website has lots of "Coming soon" and "Check this space for more information" so it looks a ways from full production.

This week we are recognizing deere478. Deere478 is a newcomer on the site who's jumped right in and adopted the Tractor Supply & Jimmy John's Gourmet Sandwiches files, which were both in need of some love. He's also been busy posting in the forums this week and has been good about sharing his troubleshooting results with the community.

Welcome and thank you deere478!
