    Question

    Don't know how accurate these new Sat-Navs would be when Earth gets flooded with sunspot activity which can not only knock out geo stationary satellites but severely effect the planet's magnetic field:

    Interesting stuff if it actually works but the earths magnetic field is constantly in a state of flux as stated above.
    Migratory birds & other animals are forever getting lost.

    This is a great idea since GPS is a life saver when you need to know your bearings outside. However its flaws in very large buildings and underground is overwhelming sad
