A friend emailed photos with the title in the email “GPS left on dashboard in the sun – WOW!” It also included the following text:

“Looks like a good lesson to learn. I would bet this also applies to cell phones, tablets, digital cameras, and other devices that use lithium batteries.

You think this may be a reason why the US Postal Service will not ship electronic devices that contain lithium batteries any longer?

GPS was placed in its bracket in the windshield and left in the sun. The battery overheated and exploded!”




I Googled this to find whether this is another hoax and found an answer on Snopes on GPS Fire
