unfortunately it's a piece of cake to jam GPS because the signal strength is so low and barely discernible above background noise, think pseudo-random number generators being necessary to detect the signal.  For all we know, Chinese criminal elements could be just as behind the disruptions.

Though totally illegal to own or use, cheap illegal jammers abound on the internet..

I've just read that the GPS tagging in Leica's new superzoom compact may not work in and around China. This is the first time I've come across this.

It makes you wonder how Canon (or Nikon) GPS tagging devices work there too.

And if they don't, what is the reason why?

China interfering with US GPS satellites?
The US denying GPS coverage to China??
