  4. The GPS-receiver has no connection with the PDA

    After you checked all settings and you are sure everything is OK, and it still does not functionate, just check if the infrared beam is turned off. Start -> settings -> connections -> beam -> all incoming beams turn off.

    Often the infrared is turned on when the device is leaving the factory.

  5. The GPS signal is very poor through a metal coated window, what to do?

    The GPS signal can be very poor with cars with a metal (to avoid sun light) coated windscreen, especially with Renault, Peugeot, Audi. You have to find the "blind-spot" than. Often it is located behind the interior (main) mirrow. In some countries they use this blind spot for taxes equipment.

    One of our cars we are using ourselves is a Renault Espace 2001 with a metal coated windscreen. We have good experience to place to GPS-receiver at the side window of the window at the back. You can easily try it.

    So there are 2 ways to solve this problem:

    • find a better place in the car;
    • use an external antenna. Available for almost all models BT GPS receiver.
