Magnets interfer with electronics?

I'm planning to using magnets to hold my glove box on so I can easily access the fuse panel. Will they interfer with the electronics? Thanks, Tom

Probably. It depends. But most electonics have been designed to not be affected by a weak magnetic field. Magnetic radiation is everywhere.
The upolstery folks like the heavy duty Velcro.

Not well versed in the magnet thing...... but my Sirrus and GPS antennas both have magnets on them and are mounted directly to my radio case...... I've not had any issues.

shielding

When I worked in electronics we had to make "tin " boxes to cover some components to shield them. I don't know the alloy content, but it was thinner than tin can sheet, and was easily soldered at lap joints.

Well, even I agree with vicrod. It totally depends on the kind of magnetic field the glove box has. I would like to know about the availability of some good magnets from the market. Which ones to buy and from where to buy them?
