Good to hear. Think about it this way. A satellite TV dish is 18" and has to be positioned perfectly to get a signal from one single bird. A GPS is maybe 3" and has to listen to 12 of them simultaneously anywhere in a 90 degree view from up in all directions, so sideways would only give you half the sky. It should get some, but to traingulate, it needs something from at least 3 points on all sides so sitting flat gives it a full view (excluding the blocking from metal in the car).
