user13371 Posted March 5, 2011 Share Posted March 5, 2011 (edited) I visited Walla Walla Washington this week and noticed an anomaly with the GPS in my car. A few minutes before getting off of Route 12 coming into town, the GPS got very confused, showed me quite far off the route itself. Cleared up just before I got to my exit to pull into town. I was puzzled as to why but pretty much forgot about it -- until a few days later when the GPS did the exact same thing in pretty much the same spot as I was LEAVING town. The only obvious, visible source of interference was a nearby wind farm. BUT... there are numerous wind farms along the route took between Portland and Walla Walla, and I only had this problem in one location. And searching online for wind farm effects on GPS didn't turn up anything conclusive. Anybody else live near one of the facilities seen anything similar? Or have other ideas about that one spot in Washington? Edited March 5, 2011 by Portland Cyclist Quote Link to comment
