No problems that I know of

We went through Egypt a little less than a year ago (December 2007) with no trouble. You can put the GPS on the Carnet if you are concerned about having to pay duty for it. My Quest 2 was on the Carnet but I was never asked about it at any border crossing.

There's a good article on the subject at Ogle Earth: Egypt's GPS ban: How does it affect the local GIS industry, Nokia and Apple's iPhone?

Summary is that GPS is officially banned, but the ban does not seem to be enforced. Of course, individual attitudes by police/customs may vary...
