Anyone having problems getting a GPS signal signal lately? We had two or three devices that kept losing signal. :unsure:

Not had any problems here.

How many satellites are you picking up?

I don't know, we were heading to Manchester for the Ideal Home event and my phone kept telling me "GPS Signal lost." Tried using my wife's phone, same thing. Tried an old PDA I typically use for brainstorm notes, and that had the same problem.

It happened about two weeks ago too, but I just put it down to a one-off thing.

This must have been the problem... Possibly near a truck using one, or more likely a dodgy Mancunian disguising a stolen car GPS tracking system... never had this trouble visiting family in Liverpool... ;) :D
