Re: Good to see the AAIB keeping up with modernity!

.. am I the only one upon reading that I instantly think of GPS blockers as notoriously used by so many professional drivers who have GPS trackers fitted to their vehicles

Given that these systems interface into operations management and customer information interfaces, I think that the company operating such tracking systems would immediately notice that delivery van 5402 wasn't showing up on the tracking system, and flag that to the M&E maintenance team. When they find no fault and next day another van develops the same temporary fault, they'll quickly put two and two together to work out that that "problem" seems to be correlated with specific drivers.
