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 tend 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.
