2003 Vauxhall Vectra 'C' 2.2 SRI

No heat refelective windscreen, but large sun strip
IPAQ 2210
SysOnChip CFplus GPS

No problems at all, even with the Ipaq lying on the front seat I can get a sat nav fix of 4, if the front seat passenger holds it in their hands, then sat fix of 6+.

I think its alot to do with the GPS receiver though, Ive heard glowing reports about the SysonChip and the ability of it picking up a good sat nav fix.

That's why i brought one Smile

Peugeot 406 03reg

Snooper S6-R - NO signal when receiver is in the front, great in the back.

TomTom3 Wired GPS - Perfect signal from the front. Thumbs Up

I guess the level of signal has a lot to do with the quality of the receiver. What does this say about the Snooper's receiver?

2004 Ford Mondeo with heated windscreen

TTN3.07 on a Mio168 with a central windscreen mount.

I would say reception is very good - usually 8-9 fixes; has been upto 12 on occasion.

I did get an external antenna bundled with the Mio, but haven't needed to use it.

Ford Focus
Heated front screen


Navman ICN 510

Place the Navman as far right as you can (rh drive!)
The antenna will then be outside the heating filaments.
Best count of 48! Fantastic reception, no problems.
