What is wrong with you? Why does it matter which state he lives? People enjoy way more freedom and human rights in any states in US or any countries in Europe. Like other posters said China has been a totalitarian regime ran by the communist party for over 60 years even though they have been practicing somewhat free market system for a while. They are willing to do funny things just so people in power can keep the status quo.

what i heard is that China doesn't feel that citizens need acess to tech like GPS.

since they are communist, what they say is the law.

epic! china isnt cumministic for 30 years....

and if china doesnt feel the need to let citizen have access to GPS why does every single mobile phone include GPS these days...which are made in china

where do you live in a USA redneck state?

fact is, you can use GPS in china with any GPS device.
BUT there is a "layoff" for google maps it seems.

if you go to google maps and chose beijing for example and you switch betweens satellite and maps it doesnt match, but you get the correct GPS data with any GPS device! fact

greetings from beijing
