I agree that adding more hardware/software to a plane every time
there is a particular accident will add weight, complexity, and might
not make the plane any safer.

I just wonder about gps, however.

I own a gps that costs 300 bucks, and can display location, speed, and
altitude with reasonalbe accuracy.  Is every airliner equiped with a gps
now, and if so why not? This device could also prevent kal-007 type
accidents.

I am no expert, let me know what the deal is . . .
