Man, I was playing around in my company car tonight (first time since I got the nuvi, been getting rentals lately) and I realized that I got only 19ft accuracy (where I usually get 10-15). I then started to look at the windsheild and saw that it was SolarRay. Now I know why my radar detector doesn't work as well in it then in my own car.
What a bummer!
Does that mean that you are going to have to go the speed limit? lol. I feel for ya. Something to keep in mind when getting a new vehicle.
We were early purchasers of a Chevy Venture in perhaps 1997 or so. That was the first year that they started using that glass. Our I-Pass transponder (for the toll road) would not work at all from inside the Venture. I had it exchanged several times before the Tollway Authority became aware of this type of glass. They eventually came out with a transponder that bolted on to the top of the license plate bracket instead. I wonder if some of the older non-SiRF chipset GPS's have more serious troubles if you have that type of glass?
For the speed limit comment, yes I don't go too fast anymore anyways cause wife would kill me if I got another ticket, the RD still provides me enough warning though, just not as good as my own car.
As for the non-SiRF GPSr units, yeah, I am sure that it would hender them a bit, but I am sure that they still would be able to use it just fine. I had full signal with the nuvi, but just as good of accuracy as in my own car.
if the wife kills u. who get ur gps
Time to invest in an external antenna, Charley...
Well, I got a 1 mile range on my RD last night on K band, so I guess that isn't too bad.
I also got down to about 13 ft accuracy on myGPSr so I guess I am alright there too
