    Does WiFi effect GPS?

    Hi Guys...

    I have a Van...only glass is at the front end of the van...

    I need to get my litle WIFI usb dongle hidden away soemwhere out of sight.

    Will the plastic in the door piller cut down my range?...and will having the WiFi about 3'-4' away form my GPS cause problems with my GPS?

    Thanks

    WiFi and GPS won't interfere. Everything in the way of your WiFi waves will affect signal quality and distance though.
