Would GPS even work inside an airplane passenger compartment, without an antenna sticking out of the roof?
A GPS works tolerably well if you're in the window seat and hold it up against the window.
Some airlines may have policies prohibiting use of GPS for security reasons, (or some some cabin attendants may believe they have such policies, which is effectively the same thing). So just in case, to avoid trouble, you might want to ask for permission first.
