Placement of the GPS Receiver

Where is the best place to install the GPS receiver?

Your GPS receiver needs continuous intervisibility to the satellites. For this reason best reception can be achieved close to the windshield.

If your car has a coated windshield your reception may be problematic as these windshields are mostly impermeable to GPS signals. In this case we recommend an external antenna or an antenna that you can fix onto your windshield.

Note:Please be aware there is no GPS reception in tunnels, closed rooms, parking garages, etc. It can also be impaired in urban canyons.
