If you're important enough to have one, that is. This is a small jamming device that you plug into the cigarette lighter of your car and it blocks any GPS tracking devices that might be trained on your vehicle. It's probably illegal, but hey, so is sex with your sister.

I agree. May be a grey area as you suggest. There are exclusions for low-power transmitters (e.g. FM converters, etc.). The tricky thing here is that the device's output is low enough that it doesn't interefere with GPS reception in *other people's* cars, only the car in which it's installed. And, presumably, the user of the GPS jammer wants to jam his/her own GPS device in just the same manner as the user of an FM converter wants to broadcast to his/her car radio. In this sense, the GPS jammer's transmitter strength is a factor in the device's legal status. Assuming the device is FCC approved (maybe, maybe not) then it would be legal for operation in approved markets.
