    Sorry, it was Bob Gothe and not David Pike that brought up the issue of air-gapping.

    Fair enough.  And if their navigational computers are indeed air-gapped, I agree with you.
    A car dealership to which I provide IT support had one PC that got a virus last year.  The virus was designed to actively search out network connections and infect any machines it found.  Of course, it found the main server for the dealership in no time flat...which made for a long night for me, trying to get them functional for 8 AM the next day.
