How often do you guys lose your satellite signal when driving through cities?

I only ask because while driving through London I lose it (on a rough average) every 3 minutes or so (for about 5 seconds, then it finds the satellites again and my new position is mapped), and always when I go through areas with tall buildings! I point this out because a review on this very web site says ...

"if you want a fast, efficient GPS Receiver that has no loss of signal when driving under trees or in cities like London with close and tall buildings, then TomTom Navigator is the ideal solution!"



So just wondered how much you guys lose your signal?



Cheers

Oisky, you don't. Just make sure the re-rad antenna is on the roof or somewhere it has a plain view of the sky outside the car. The stick antenna should be within I think 2 feet of your current GPS Receiver, and this will then transmit the signal to it and the receiver will then see a stronger signal.
