    I go from 8 sats to no lock...why?!

    Ive been doing some testing and what I have consistently found is that while driving I will randomly go from 8-10 sats to no lock at all. This is under clear unobstructed sky too.
    This usually happens for a short period of 1-5 seconds and then it picks back up with 8-10 sats again
    What the heck is going on here...


    I have a Garmin 15L (OEM type) with a might mouse antenna on the rear deck at the base of the windshield so its below the heater wires

    How long has this been happening? The last couple of days have been really funky for my locks.
