GPS signal interference continued on Tuesday. However, the most significant disruptions took place on December 26, 2023, when high and moderate GPS signal disturbances affected areas from Włoszczowa (Świętokrzyskie Voivodeship) and Radom through Łódź, Biała Podlaska, Warsaw, Kalisz, Płock, Białystok, Poznań, Gorzów Wielkopolski, Olsztyn, Grudziądz, Szczecin, to Świnoujście, Kołobrzeg, Ustka, and Suwałki.

Internet users complained that determining their position using GPS was challenging, making it impossible to mark specific locations. The issue also affected applications requiring GPS signals, including Pokémon Go. Disruptions extended into Germany, reaching the islands of Usedom and Rügen, and further affecting the Danish island of Bornholm and the southern region of Sweden from Malmö to Kalmar. Additionally, disruptions were reported in the southwestern part of Lithuania.
