    Where exactly is the gps mounted? I was having problems with mine, the windshield seemed to attenuate the signal a bit. Would work great for a while (full sats), then just cut out. Seemed to be an ionization effect in the windshield. Ended up putting my GPS on the hood.

    The GPS has a magnet inside. It's on the metal plate (roof) of the trunk.

    Well, I just tested it today. Everything seems to be working ok.

    Next, I'll test the GPS... still trying to figure out what'll do with the screen.

    I've decided to end this project here. I will sell my components and get a DAP.
