    Question Sunroof Install

    Anyone install their GPS reciever and WiFi card in the sunroof compartment? I'm worried about it being exposed to more temperature extremes and moisture up there but it would have a perfect view of the sky.

    I doubt temperature would be a problem, many people mount the GPS receiver to the outside of the car. In fact, a lot of OEM GPS receivers are out there, aren't they?

    Yes I know some have it outside but I'm in the North East. When temperatures really drop I'd hate to have the GPS die.

    Actually, the receiver portion of an OEM setup is inside the car, away from elements. THe only thing outside the car is the antenna, which is waterproof and not affected by extreme temperatures.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?
