Hi all

I have finally got round to buying a disc for my MCD sat nav system in my Golf. Its the one with the mono screen. Anyway I purchased the GPS antenna off ebay a while back, its one of the ones thats supposed to work within the dash I believe. Anyhow I have not been able to find any satellites? It cannot find me! The rest seems to be working ok but obviously I cannot use it. Does anyone know if there is there some kind of setting up process to find the position? or is it becuase of my cheap GPS aerial?

I am going to try and put the antenna on top of the dash next if itll help.

Cheers

Jake

Is it a magnetic antenna?

Its commonplace when retrofitting to mount them on the big metal bar that runs across the front of the car and is accessible behind the glovebox, thats where I put mine [Y]
