Hard reset question

 

When doing a hard reset and letting the unit get the satellites, should this be done on a cloud free day or does it matter. I was reading some of the posts and it was stated to do this in an open area.

Clouds don't matter.

An open area mean outside with a clear view of the sky (ie not blocked by buildings, trees, or other structures).

Thanks Motorcycle mama

I did mine originally on my driveway and there is a tree along side it, so I'm thinking I may just go to a parking lot and redo it just to be sure.

Unless it is a torrential downpour. At the frequencies GPS operates, even thick clouds won't affect the signal enough to matter.

Thanks

I live in a suburb of Chicago and it's often cloudy.

Inside house

In parts of my house I can get the signal. The Low-E windows are out for locating. It will go through my brick walls but not my windows.

Do you have the energy Low-E windows?

We have a weather station that will not work next to the windows. We have to put it on a kitchen counter with only a wall to the outside in view. The low-e windows block whatever makes the house hot and cold so it must block something needed to transmit GPS and Weatherstations.
