    slightly disapointed..

    i installed Routis 2004 on my roomate's laptap. my receiver is the bu-303. this afternoon (around 3) i had clear skies all around. first time testing the program, it got a lock. it maintained like 8/12 satelites. I noticed it was off by about 15-20 feet (i was ahead of where it said i was). thats ok..i can get over that.

    i went back out at 11:30 pm to get some checkers and i could not get a lock for the life of me. the skies seemed to still be pretty clear. i only got 1 lock the whole time and that was for about 5 seconds.

    anyone have any ideas why?

    i read around in some other posts and someone mentioned being stationary until you get a lock. i guess i'll try that tomorrow during my 3 hour drive back to connecticut..and the return trip here in long island. but i really don't know what would make it not work.

    Lot of info on other threads...i'm sure you 'd right?

    receiver more sensitive than deluo?

    Yeah, try staying still and getting the lock before you start moving.

    Where is your reciever mounted? Usually the front dash works best.

    Try holding it on the roof and seeing if it works better and if it does, then you know your glass might have a coating on it.

    Simple things you can try, if anything your reciever might be defective, but try those things first.....

    well, i drove to ct and back...and it worked somewhat flawlessly. theres still the 1 second lag..and sometimes the program would tell me to go back onto the road (even though i WAS on the road)

    i assume the problem i had before with it not working was the combination of the laptop going into standby every 10 seconds when the charger isnt plugged in, and me not stopping until i got a lock. so i bought a 60 watt power inverter..and ended up blowing the fuse after 45 minutes...oh well...i need to find the laptop car adapter.
