Radar gun spots vehicles with illegal GPS jammers

 A new handheld radar can pinpoint which vehicles are illegally using the jammers to stop their bosses from monitoring where they drive or to dodge automatic tolls on motorways.

Used just like a speed gun, a police or customs officer would train the iPad sized gadget, made by Chronos Technology of Lydbrook, UK, on queues of traffic – or even on people walking down the street.

The device is needed because a £50 jammer, which can be bought online, can cause widespread GPS outages thanks to the low power of the GPS satellite signal.

Until now, says navigation engineer Ian Cotts at Chronos, a number of devices have been available to law enforcement officers who want to detect jammers. But existing detectors can only detect the presence of a jammer, not find out where it is.

Why would you ever pay for a jammer?  GPS signals are not very strong at all, and can easily be blocked.  Simply find the antennae and wrap it in aluminum foil.  The signal is now jammed.
