it has been found that most electronics, even a phone in plane mode can interfere with a beacon in search mode if the electronic device is closer than 18" to the beacon.

When im out exploring i like to track my route with the gps on my phone, phone goes in the pack, beacon is in the bib pocket. Right around 18" apart but doesnt seem to cause interference when other check my beacon.
