But doesn't that only matter if you are on autopilot? If you are in manual flight mode, what relevance does the sat nav system have if you are not navigating by it?
I can see it mattering if you are on autopilot, because in autopilot you've said "navigate to point X (or waypoints X, Y, Z, etc.) as provided by the SatNav". So if you change the SatNav remotely to change where point X is, I can see the autopilot taking you to a place you weren't expecting.
But if you turn off the autpilot and use another navigation method to determine what course to manually steer the plane in (either a portable SatNav, or visual navigation using a map, ruler, compass, visual waypoints, or just "hey, I see a mountain over there, I'll just fly into it"), then does it matter if they override the SatNav?
If the NYPD isn't informing it's own officers of the judgement and it's requirements, maybe the Judge should order the NYPD to conduct an advertising campaign, at its own expense, to inform both its staff and the public of NY about the (il)legality of the stop and frisk procedure and what the public's rights and complaints procedures are.

Re: "No one needs that much, no one will ever use it!"
I'd say a better analogy would be to ban all vehicles except motorbikes, and design the road system to only carry such. One person only needs one seat. Why do you need more than a single-occupant vehicle?
The old 4Mbps downstream speed is equivalent to a motorcycle^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^Hscooter. Sufficient to carry 1 person as long as you just need basic transport and no luggage space.
The new 25Mbps is like a good-sized sedan. Can carry 4 or so adults in reasonable comfort, or a family of 5.
100Mbps is a people-mover/van/pickup (i.e something that can carry like 7-8 people, or a small amount of cargo/tools for tradie etc). Or like sports cars/sportsbikes, 'enthusiasts' who travel faster and have fun using their transport, pushing the (affordable) limits.
Gigabit is like a semi or a bus. Or a supercar/bike for those that can afford it and like showing off.
But I do agree this should be the owner of the iPhones choice. Rather than bricking the phone, it should just give a warning each time you go to scan a fingerprint that it's a non-certified scanner and thus could be compromised.
Apple's software is checking for licensed scanners, not scanner safety in general.
Well not really.
Consider this scenario.
Scanner replaced with a new scanner that has TWO I/O ports instead of one. Port 1 is connected to the standard iPhone system, port 2 bypasses the iPhone hardware and is linked to other hardware (either internal, external, or say directly to the wifi interface bypassing iOS). Any scans via the fingerprint scanner can be duplicated and sent out both ports, port 1 to the standard iPhone subsystems/iOS, and port 2 where it is recorded. Later on, if the installer of the scanner wishes to access some function of the phone protected via the fingerprint scanner, feed in recorded scanning into I/O port 2 and redirect it out I/O port 1 into the guts of the iPhone. As far as iOS is aware, it's a legitimate scan coming from the fingerprint scanner because it didn't verify that it was a certified secure (or to spec, e.g. only 1 I/O port) scanner.
