    Can water block a gps/cell signal? How deep it should be? How does molecular agitation of the water affect the blocking?

          Too many factors to answer well. In general, the higher the frequency, the lower the penetration. water "quality" is also a factor as salt water will be different from muddy river from swimming pool, etc. Also the device quality counts - how much packet loss before it gives up?

          I want to remember that the subs pick up a lot of their info around 100 ft. On the other hand my XYL trashed the attenuation competition at an early tin hat session with a water soaked liner.

          If you are worried about being tracked, why not take the battery out?
