GPS Navigation. Each satellite transmits a unique signal that contains data needed by the SLGR to
determine your location. The signal cannot penetrate objects such as buildings, metal, mountains or very
thick vegetation, and your body tends to block it. Clouds, rain, snow and even severe weather have little
effect on it. Canvas and Kevlar covers do not effect it either. If you are not receiving signals from enough
satellites, the SLGR will tell you this.
Move to a more open position, away from buildings and steep slopes so the antenna can receive the
signals. Since the satellites are always moving, sometimes a short wait is needed until three or four satellites
have moved into the view of the receiver.
Inspect the GPS and ensure that all required accessories are available.
Turn unit on and go to the SETUP Screen.
Set SV Type to "MIXED" or "ALL-Y" in war time.
