How can the SPOT interference be prevented in aircraft?


In many cases, keeping the SPOT device at least 12-18 inches away from any navigation equipment or GPS antennas will resolve the problem.   This can be difficult in smaller planes as many pilots want to place the SPOT device on the glare shield.  If interference is observed, move the SPOT device to another location and check again for interference.  Continue testing until the problem is resolved.  Please note that in some cases, the interference problem will not be able to be resolved unless the SPOT product is turned off.
