Is my SPOT device considered a Portable Electronic Device by the FAA? https://faq.findmespot.com/index.php?action=showEntry&data=1826 products are used on an aircraft, they are considered a Portable Electronic
Device (PED).  Per 14 CFR Part 91.21, the
pilot is ultimately responsible for approving the use of any Portable Electronic Devices on their aircraft and must
be able to show compliance upon request by the FAA.  This includes being able to show that any
PED’s being used do not affect the safety of the aircraft. ]]>

How can the SPOT interference be prevented in aircraft? https://faq.findmespot.com/index.php?action=showEntry&data=1825 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 resol]]>

How can I determine if the SPOT device transmissions affect the aircraft’s navigation electronics? https://faq.findmespot.com/index.php?action=showEntry&data=1824 the aircraft navigation system starts to have momentary interference issues at
the same intervals that the SPOT device is transmitting Tracking messages, then
the SPOT device must be moved or turned off to resolve the interference.]]>

How SPOT works? https://faq.findmespot.com/index.php?action=showEntry&data=1823 either 1611.25 MHz in North America and portions of Central America or on
1616.25 MHz throughout the rest of the world. 
These frequencies are just above the GPS L1 frequency (1575.42 MHz) used
by many aircraft navigation systems. 
When the SPOT product transmits, there is the possibility of
interference even though both the SPOT
device and the aircraft navigation/communication systems meet all FCC regulatory
requirements for interferenc]]>
