    GPS & Channels

    Hi All,

    I have a old bluetooth GPS that has I think 16 or 24 channels. Its a Leadtek.

    I currently pick up between 7-12 satellites.

    If I get a GPS with more channels does that mean I will pickup more satellites?

    Or

    Whats the purpose of more channels?

    Thanks

    The numberof channels you have available is the number of satellites you can lock onto.
    If you have a receiver with 16 channels and you are maxing out at 12 locked sat's, a receiver with more than 16 channels (or 12 for that matter) won't help you at all.
    I installed my carpc into my pet Kangaroo, mate.
