By sat nav, do you mean in-car navigation systems? If so, the answer is yes and no. I've had two built-in car navigation systems. Both indicated the
location of the border, though not correctly. The following image shows me crossing the border, but this is at a place where you are allowed to cross
the border, just not linger.
Many of the roads leading to the border of Area 51 and the Nellis range in general are on the satellite navigation systems. Of course, many are wrong.
If you drive around the ranges, you are much better off with a handheld GPS and accurate trails. I've been logging trails on my GPS and posting them.
By no means have I logged everything. Here is an example of GPS data to reach Roadblock Canyon:
This road is also on my in-car navigation system, though not as accurately represented. It was good enough though.
It is suspected the cammo dudes have aftermarket satellite navigation systems. Look at the lower left corner of this photograph:
The GPS is at the extreme left corner. The next item is a MRK Edacs radio. I got a good photo of the dude, but they get pissed if you put their photos
on the internet. It could cost them their job, and at the least they will have to explain why they didn't attempt to hide their face.
