    I put mine on a non metal surface prior and now I put it on a metal surface instantly where I got no sats all of a sudden I get 5. my car was halfway in the garage lots of trees everywhere.

    so I think it had something to do with the magnet becuase my LCD resolution is 61 for my xenarc.

    I had to mount mine on my roof, if it was not on the roof I get no sats, with it magnatised it works. Now I need to find a way to waterproof it. Any suggestions?

    I have a X5 so maybe a shark fin is in order here. Also the cap people are talking about, I see a watch battery in there. Is that way were reffering to?

    run a thin silicone bead around the lip, cable retainer and led window and seal it together to waterproof it.

    Does your X5 have metallic paint? If not, pop off the cover over the tailgate and stick it inside there. It should work perfectly.

    Not sure if the paint is matellic but the I already have the factory gps antenna and that works great. I like the red light from the BU303, looks cool at night. Is there such a thing as spray silicon. I could give the whole thing a nice coat.
