Troubleshooting Antenna Issues

If you are finding slow acquision times, low satellte counts, or dropouts in reception these tips may help.

Location

The antenna can be used indoors for most buildings, it is not necessary to place outside or near a window unless your building has large amounts of concrete, steel, or brick.

The included GPS antenna can be placed in any orientation, but will work best when facing upwards.

Ground Planes

The Antenna's effectiveness will be improved if attached to the top of a metal sheet or plate that is parallel to the ground. The antenna puck includes a magnetic base.

Bad, Good, Best
