My Cessna has a Apollo 2001 GPS receiver which was upgraded to a TSO C129
GPS Sensor around the turn of the century. It is likely this unit,
was approved by the Federal Aviation Administration (TSO) will not
signals from LightSquared's proposed cell phone network. It will take
to $20,000 to replace this unit with a "LightSquared resistant" unit
become available in several years. Do you think LightSquared will cut
$20,000 check to cover the costs, not to mention downtime?
