Tactical coordinate suppression

Here’s an interesting piece of arty annoyanceware, a GPS jammer that finds your coordinates (via GPS) only after you find a place and stand still (switched by a motion sensor), then the device jams the waypoint for everybody else. The concept of the device is to help you find you a place of solitude and then its blots out the spot electronically, so that others can’t find it.
