    Does the windscreen block GPS signals from a Geodesey ? uk

    I put my Geodesey in last night but as yet have not been able to get a signal. Is this the fault of the Geodesey or is the screen one that stops the signal?

    Re: Does the windscreen block GPS signals from a Geodesey ?

    Last I heard, the problem with GPS antennas is that they should be unobstructed. The steel and glass can mess up the extremely weak transmissions from the satellite. Performance is intermittant at best depending on the direction of travel. Maybe things have changed in the past few years since I learned about GPS systems.

    Well after a lot of fiddling around today I have to agree. The good news is I have finally got a signal so now that I have a GPS system and a laser jammer my licence should remain clear

    Re: Does the windscreen block GPS signals from a Geodesey ?

    Be careful with your laser jammer. A guy in Northamptonshire has been charged with perverting the course of justice for using one of these devices which are illegal in the UK. This story is genuine and was also in a local newspaper.

    I know of that story and I have also followed it on Pepipoo and rest assured my defence is in place and ready. This guy who got caught also forgot the one cardinal rule which is to react quickly, drop the speed and then deactivate. Had he done so and not pissed the police off he would have most likely got away with it as they would have been able to gain a speed reading.

    I know a number of people who use them around here and they never get caught or even questioned by the police because they are not stupid enough to leave them on for 7 seconds like this guy did.

    Finally if this guy had any knowledge of the law he would not have had the police crawling over his car looking for this gadget when they came to his home !

    I have to say I think the jammers are a great idea. A friend of mine had one custom installed in his Vanquish along with a Road Angel system after I told him about them. The way he drives he needs it!

    Unfortunately they are almost a necessity in this country as the POlice go more underhand so must we.
