Has anyone else had any experience of using the above or any other transferrable GPS in Scotland. I have had my Nuvi since February and got the GTM11 as soon as available. Had very poor reception and could only pick up signals in about 10% of Central Scotland. Garmin recently exchanged it for a GTM12 and this is marginally better, but still not what I'd expected.

I previously used a VDO Dayton MS5000 with TMC which worked pretty well so have been disappointed with results on this one.

What is anyone else's experience with these units? Does yours work OK or is the RDS signal too weak? Question

I'd be interested to hear if anyone else can successfully pick up signals in Scotland - the TM area stretches all the way up to Fraserburgh, but there's no way I ever get anything North of Kinross!

I find the GTM 12 useless in most areas it doesn't seem to get good reception with the length of wire as an aerial in the car.

Did you use an external aerial with the GTM 11?
