    As being experienced by several users- any idea what could be causing this?

    I read this over there as well.... Has anyone confirmed it doesn't happen with FreeDrive or any other D3-based front end?

    I've got a BU303 and got this with the older version of Map Monkey too... But the BU303 isn't the brightest tool in the box when it comes to aquiring a decent number of satellites.

    I've got a BU-303 and it runs great, the only time I get the "signal too low" message is when I go under a tunnel or a petrol station forecourt etc..

    The actual message itself comes from D3 though doesn't it... I got it a lot round Birmingham city centre with all the high buildings etc... I just turned off the voice notification so I don't get it loud when the music's blasting.

    After installing the latest MapMonkey I started getting GPS signal too low or the signal is not enough to get a lock, despite having 3 or 4 sats.

    Using mediacar so I keep swapping to the original destinator 2 which is built in. But this only works if I have not started MapMonkey first, otherwise I need to reboot.

    Took the GPSmouse outside the car and the signal is stronger and works OK.

    Have now put a metal tray underneath the GPSmouse and it works better, but still not as it was before Latest MapMonkey.

    So either the latest MapMonkey does something funky or the GPS signal has been turned down for some reason.





    NB will try to use FreeDrive in the next couple of days.

    seriously there is nothing SW can do to turn the number of sat's down or affect what is received... 3 or 4 sats however isn't a good lock

    It was fine for Route 66, Destinator 2, Destinator 3 and Map Monkey, all the previous beta versions of Map Monkey, it's just since the latest version, whether it be a coincidence or not I don't know.



    PS even with 7 or 8 satellites I still get the weak signal notification.

    Advanced GPS on, or off?
