Question about GPS
In order to maintain satellite connection your GPS receiver needs a clear view of the sky. If you are operating the GPS in areas where the view of the sky is limited due to tall buildings, hills and mountains, or dense forest, your GPS is liable to lose signal from one or more satellites and this can impact the receiver's ability to determine your current location.
If you are operating the GPS inside your vehicle an external antenna may help significantly. The body of the vehicle can act as a shield, blocking the GPS's ability to receive satellite signals. This is why most manufacturers recommend installing GPS receivers on the dashboard with a clear view of the windshield as this maximizes the amount of visible sky. Installing an external antenna on the vehicle and connecting this to the GPS can help significantly, however.
Depending on the geography of where you are operating the GPS, you may have to live with an occasional loss of connectivity. With proper mounting you can minimize this, however.
