Is Clear-Cast TV micro antenna device legitimate?


From a basic standpoint, yes it is legitimate and it will work. How well it will work really depends on a number of things. it depends on where in your house you place it, how far you are from the transmitters and what your house is made from. The structure can interfere with reception.
As a general rule, outside is better than inside for over the air digital reception. Higher is also better, so place any antenna as far up on your house as you can outside, next go to the attic space if you can;t mount it outside. And even if you are in a condo or HOA , they have to allow you to mount a TV antenna on your house outside under FCC regulations.

Unable to acquire satellites


GPS devices do not work inside buildings or in tunnels. Even outside, high-rise buildings or trees can interfere with GPS signal reception. Car navigation systems do not work through the roof of the car, they need to be mounted to the windshield of the car with free view to the sky, or use an external antenna.
Some cars have metal coating on the windows for sunlight blocking or privacy protection. Such coatings may also block the GPS satellite signals.

Another problem: unlike TV satellites, GPS satellites do not have a fixed position relative to the ground, they move all the time. Your GPS device needs to locate and tune in on four satellites minimum first to start working for you. The scanning of the hemisphere to locate satellites takes several minutes (up to ten on Tomtom devices).

Tomtom devices use a device stored file with precomputed satellite positions to speed up the process to a few seconds. Since the file holds data only for about two weeks, the package "QuickGPSFix" needs to be updated at least once in a fortnight using the Tomtom HOME software, or it will fall back to the slow scanning procedure.

If you do have a different brand of GPS device, please add a comment to this post and I'll try to give further advice.

MY TOMTOM ONE WILL NOT PICK UP A VALID GPS SIGNAL


The Tomtom devices need to locate GPS satellites in the sky in order to work. Unlike TV satellites, these do not have fixed positions but move relatively to the ground. The Tomtom can locate them by scanning the hemisphere, but this takes up to ten minutes after you switch on the device.

To speed up the process, the Tomtom receivers can use a helper file stored on the device. It holds precomputed positional data for the GPS satellites that makes finding them a matter of a few seconds.

However, the file holds precomputed data for some two weeks in advance only. After this period, the Tomtom device has to resort to the slow scanning procedure.

You will need to connect your Tomtom device to a PC with the "Tomtom HOME" software installed, available from the Tomtom company web site. Use the software by following the onscreen instructions to update the package "QuickGPSFix" at least once every two weeks and you will find your device much more swift in establishing GPS connection.

Note also, all GPS devices require clear view of the sky. They do not work inside buildings, in tunnels, through the roof of the car, and even trees or buildings near to the car may compromise GPS reception. Make sure the device is mounted in an area of the windshield where it can "see" the satellites.
Some cars have metallic a coating on the windows (used for sunlight filtering and "can look outside - can't look inside" fancies). There are reports that these coatings also interfere with GPS receivers' ability to receive the satellite signals.

My new Garmin Nuvi 1450 lost satellite signal more than 30 times between Topeka Ks and KCI. Is this normal?


I have the same exact problem. Satellite detection outside of vehicle before starting out was full strength, as soon as you get into vehicle strength drops off to practically nothing. Now start driving and it continually loses satellite reception even on the open road with no hills and a clear day. It was mounted as far into the front windshield as I could get it and still crappy reception. Very disappointing as a cheaper Tom Tom my sister has works flawlessly. Also my daughters HTC desire Z cell phone GPS works flawlessly even from the back seats in the van. Maybe 1450LMT is just junk, and I should look for a refund.

LG VU Interference?


Some phones are just plain better than others in both reception and transmission. I wouldn't think it is interference since another phone works within the house and on the same network. You might want to look into a home cell phone signal booster (googling that will result in a lot of retailers), but these are by no means cheap. However, they can make a huge difference in quality of service within a structure.

No reception or calls allowed,all else working.


Probably, the phone's radio might be off? depending on your phone, it would be in options and maybe in the network tab... which you would have to enable to ON. Alternatively, If not, it might be in OFF mode in the profiles, you know like vibrate, loud, quiet, etc...change your profile to maybe quiet or loud if not already that. Thirdly, it might be set to flight mode too, where it turns your cellphone's radio off but leaves all other functions working, so as not to interfere with the plane's radar and other radio frequencies? if there's an X where the reception should be, definetely means your phone is not recieving or transmitting data, and should be easily fixable without having to call a support center unless you've done those three steps with no improvements.

Cannot locate saltellite or Acquiring satellite


The error means it can't pick up valid GPS signals. In other words, bad reception.

Has the unit ever worked? Does the unit have an internal or external antenna? Are the batteries fully charged?

Try the unit outside with clear view of sky instead of in the car. This will give it the best chance of picking up a GPS signal.

If it still doesn't then suggest something broken inside.
