1. Do any of you experience problems with resuming from hibernate mode with the Rikaline always connected?
I dont use hibernate so cant help there
2. Have you mounted your's with a direct line-of-sight to the sky, or is it possible to mount it in the trunk under the rear shelf where the speakers are mounted? I've heard stories where people claim they have their Rikaline mounted under the driver or passenger seat and it has no problem acquiring satellites, but I'm not sure how true that can be.
Mine is located under the dash of my car, behind the instrument cluster.
I'm trying to figure out a good place to mount it in the car, and am thinking it will probably need to be somewhere near the rear of the car, possibly just snaked up from the trunk and onto the rear shelf or right under the headliner, where the headliner meets the rear window.
3. Is there any reason why a GPS unit should be mounted toward the front of the car (by the windshield) as opposed to the rear of the car? I had a problem powering the unit when I put it on the end of a 10' USB extension cable, so I'd like to keep it as close as possible to the computer in the trunk...
Should be no problem with the extension, I have a 15 foot cable. However, I think mounting in the back is a good idea. One thing I did find was the GPS and LCD can interfere with each other. If my lilliput is running at 72Hz refresh rate, my 6010 sat number drops in half. So I keep the LCD at 60Hz and all is fine.
Basically, I'm just looking for some hints/insight as to best places to mount it. Does it absolutely have to have line-of sight to the sky?
I would test it, again I do not need line of sight get 8-10 sats no problem, but only cutting through plastic then glass. Give it a test.
