Yep, itís still like that to this day.  ;D  Itís finding 12 satellites, which is probably as good as the shark fin, considering that the box is just thrown somewhere under the dashboard. Only issue really is when I do a code scan I get an open circuit fault for the shark fin but I can live with that.  :)

Shark fin will see more and with a higher signal strength but, you only need 4 or 5 in sight to get a half decent position.

I suspect the shark fin antenna has a DTC resistor in it so it would be possible to get rid of that but adding the same.

In fairness, Iíve no idea how many it see with the shark fin, as I had no need to check until it went wrong but I agree, the line of sight alone is better for the shark fin.  :y

I was impressed with how the accuracy of the navigation system is with the GPS antenna disconnected.  Over 30 miles driven, and its still cock-on :)

Dead reckoning working then

Last October one of my granddaughters  decided she'd learn to drive[she's in her mid thirties]and after having her first lesson went out and bought a well battered MkIV Golf diesel to gain extra practice in. I got roped in to being co-pilot for these extra driving outings,not to try and teach her how to drive but just so she got extra practice.As it was we had many more of these than she did of official lessons with a proper instructor.In fact from last October until yesterday she had 15 hour long proper lessons and yesterday passed her test at the first time of asking.She of course is dead chuffed and I'm relieved as I no longer have to ride about in a god awful Golf!
As long as you don't get roped in to repairing the damn thing. Unless you enjoy it of course.  ;)

Very rarely use satnav, don't go to many places that I've never been before, had our 20 year old grandson on a trip out with  us a few weeks ago & he just couldn't understand why I didn't need satnav at all.
It's not so much for the guidance, as, like many i've spent all my driving life driving around the Country for work, it's more for the traffic / road information / speed limit functions that I find useful
.

Got to admit that the traffic info on the radio has come in useful on the odd occasion.👍
