2013 SRX/Escort 9500ix GPS Not Locking On Satellite
I am unable to use the GPS function of my Escort 9500ix in my new SRX.
When I place the detector to the right of the mirror, it will not lock onto the satellites. If I move it a away from the center or down near the dash, it is able to lock on and starts reading out the speed.
My dealer was not aware of any coating on the windshield that would prevent it from receiving the signal. I had a Mercedes that had a coated windshield that had certain areas that were uncoated to place the detector.
I am not sure if this is the problem, or maybe interference from the from some of the other electronics like the CUE system or the camera behind the mirror.
Anyone else having the issue?

I figured out it was some kind of interference from the mirror and/or camera mounted in the mirror cluster. If I move it down and/or away, it works fine.
Now I am trying to find a switched 12V source. All of the fuses in the front passenger side fuse box seem to always be hot. I was going to use a fuse jumper to add a circuit, but need a switched circuit.

I was able to find one up in the overhead console. Where the lights and sunroof switch is. I found only ONE spot in there that was 12v ignition hot.
