The smart phone will also use GPS transmitters to get a "fix", does your car windscreen have a wire mesh built into the screen to heat the screen for defrosting and demisting. This coupled with heavy cloud can cause signal loss f in-car satnavs

No. It has some kind of heat reflective coating but it's never been an issue.

I'm writing the experience of as a freak but if I'm ever again south of Bruges turning left/southwest off the A403 on to the A40 towards Ghent, I shall be very vigilant!

I posted a while ago tht my Nuvi 760 was greyed out in MyGarmin and surmised that it had received its last map/software update.

However, I went into Garmin Express just now and find that an update to map version 2018.20 is showing as available. Surprised

Not bad going for analmost 10 year old model. Very Happy

Yes the NT version of the latest map, which was released in August, is now available for the older models that use the NT rather than NTU version.
