Why is China flooding S’pore with its “GPS” devices?

The Chinese version of the Global Positioning System, better known as GPS, has overtaken the US original round the world. But kook at the number it has here: why?

Is it because unlike GPS, which only sends signals and cannot identify the location of receivers, BeiDou’s communications with the ground are two-way?

The growth of BeiDou has profound implications and is raising alarm in the US national security establishment. Unlike GPS, which only sends signals and cannot identify the location of receivers, BeiDou’s communications with the ground are two-way. According to Dean Cheng of the Heritage Foundation, the Chinese satellites can jam signals in specific areas and raise capabilities in cyber attacks.

S’poreans should be asking why the PAP govt is allowing this probable threat to national security. Don’t believe me? Mamaland and Japan, both rivals of China, also got a lot of these devices?

But maybe it all has to do with the use of Chinese-made smartphone handsets?

What do you think?
