easiest way to figure this out is to place the gps outside of the window even hold it out if necessaryy and if it gets a signal then its the windshield if not the wiring may be damaged or the gps antenna is faulty.

I took out my Sungate and put in a regular tinted one, same as Chevy Caprice, for $210. The Sungate was hard to see through; over time everything looked "crinkled".

I didn't think you could tell, but then again, I haven't had one. I wear polarized sunglasses a lot, so I see those windshields a mile away, it really makes them stand out.

with or without the "sungate" windshield magnetic compasses have a strong tendency to point toward that huge chunk of I-RON up front !
one thing i thought was kool about my first FWB (without sungate) was you could line up THREE large pizzas on the dash board ... but then i found out that in the summertime you could also BAKE THEM ! :eek:
