    GPS Help!

    I have got a GPS snooper and tom tom PDA sat nav that used to be fitted into my mk4 SRI and worked fine. I have now bought a mk4 GSI and fitted the kit in the same position but neither product can connect to the satelite. the work outside the car but not in it.

    Any help much appreciated as I need the sat nav in a weeks time and dont want to hold it out the window whilst driving along LOL.

    The GSi has a refecting windscreen.

    The sensor needs to go in another place.

    It can go on the screen where its black behind the mirror or looking up through the rear screen.

    I have my GPS sensors (One for my Snooper radar detector and one for my Car-PC's sat nav) under the rear shelf so you cant see them and they work fine like that

    Will try and route the sat nav GPS module to the black patching on the windscreen. Snooper will have to wait as its £60 for the anntena.

    thanks for your help
