(Solved) epia m10k + lilliput + itps + morex 60w psu => gps blocker?
(PROBLEM SLOVED, see last post)
alright guys, I need some RF expert to help me out here.
I have a EPIA m10k mobo (laptop hd, dvd rom) + lilliput screen regulated by itps to a morex 60w psu. Here's what I discover:
My usb gps mouse will see the satellites under my front windshield, but it would never be able to get a lock. My lilliput is mounted on top of my dash. All the cables and wires are routed inside the dash to the computer under my glove box. I found out that if I turn the lilliput off, the gps was able to get a lock in seconds. So I thought the lcd was producing interference with the gps when on. However, if I connect Lilliput to a laptop instead of the mini-itx box, the gps locks the satellite too.
I figure that it gotta be the combination of m10k's onboard video device + lilliput resulted the problem. If I put the gps on the roof, I could get inconsistent lockings (I guess the metal roofing shields some interference). I have tested both the ebay gps mouse unit and delorme's earthmate unit, and they yield the same result.
I tried to tin foil the lilliput cable and the mini-itx box, but there was no difference. (however, I didn't ground the tin foil either. would that make any difference?)
Does anyone have similar experience or has any idea on how to fix this problem? You would be greatly appreciated!!!!!
