TomTom Go 700 useless in a RRC with heated screen!

Bugger me, as I'm using the RRC as my full time ride due to work at the
moment, I needed to find a specifiic address in Barnsley today & as i
approached on the M1 the thing couldn't tri-angulate etc. Is it the heated
screen (useful as it it is!) or just the very 'flat' screen angle?

Never mind etc, but it wasted half an hour on a silly busy day.

I still got the order for the schools (135k) so i could afford an outside
reciever etc!

It is the heated screen, as you suggested the only answer is an outside
receiver.

Heated screen. I've got a seperate aerial for my Garmin Quest which sits
in the bottom corner of the screen where there are no wires.

I've got one. Used it in the previous Disco in the corner of the screen
where there are no elements, works a treat. Don't think I need it now, drop
me a mail!.

Re: TomTom Go 700 useless in a RRC with heated screen!

I have one of the old Tom Tom's and use it with our Sierra which has a
heated screen and it works fine does not seem to be any difference from the
car to my works van which does not have a heated screen, but all the same
they are great aren't they ?

Odd, never had an issue in my Disco with heated screen? However, an
external antenna will resolve the issue. Or wait for the enxt generation.
The new TomTom ONE has a SiRFstarIII receiver which is not affected by
heated screens, athermic windscreens etc. Doubtless the current GO's will
be replaced by models with the SSIII chipset in due course.

Our Rangie Classic & Disco had big issues with GPS Mouse. Had to use the
sunroof on the Disco.

P38 and Garmin GPS12. Never a problem - just took a bit longer to acquire.
