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).
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.
I live in a suburb of Chicago and it's often cloudy.
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.
Wow! That's strange.
I would think its the other way round!!! But hey what do i know. Mine works close to 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.
