Weather Interferances

 

Finding that my C330 cannot locate any satellites if the weather is poor. Understand that I may have interferance as weather interfers with satellites but I get no recpetion in any weather related occurrence.

Is my Garmin dead?

GPS signals are not affected by rain, clouds, etc.

Add snow and fog to the mix

Add snow and fog to the mix. I would imagine it's the chip set you have on board the GPSr. Remember you either get what you pay for or you fall victim to obsolete or degragraded technology in no time flat.

As all electronic devices go, you can't be worried about price or features of what you bought today, because tomorrow it will become obsolete.

We have had this discussion before.
What you say is "generally" true but very extreme weather conditions CAN and DO impact GPS signals.

To the original poster: Your question might get more attention if it was posted in a GARMIN forum instead of Magellan !!
