At last the GPS ban is lifted in Egypt thanks to a Presidential decree issued recently. NTRA has approved the use and import of GPS mobile phones and cars with GPS navigation system today. I am more than happy.
Some sources are speaking that Nokia used to its influence to get this presidential decree , it is unfair to customize the handset only for three countries in world “Egypt,Syria and North Korea” taken in consideration the use of mobile phones in Egypt is more advanced that those two countries.
What makes me wonder is that why the president has to interfere in such stuff , in fact why the GPS is considered a matter of national security and why the army objects the use of GPS despite all its bases are spotted by the satellites !!??
