Default Boarding with a GPS

Is there a problem with taking a GPS and a small 2 way radio with you on a cruise.

No I have never taken a GPS on but I have heard of people that take them on.

I have taken walkie talkies on, so yes you can bring them on.

There are digital cameras these days that have GPS in them to tag the image with a map location, so if they are ok on a ship I don't see why any other system shouldn't be allowed.

I've been on Carnival and brought my GPS in my carry on bag and never had a problem. I take it off the ship when we go to port because we are looking for caches at each port. And we have never had a problem getting back on.

Its great to find things on differant parts of the world.

The only thing I would have to say about the radios is they don't work very well on the ship. I have some really good ones, but when you are inside the ship you don't get a very good connection. So don't rely on them.
