Default GPS antenna

Hi,

Will a GPS receiver work on the dashboard of a 1997 Camry?
I am considering buying a satellite navigation set for a PDA, but i hear
some stories of gps receivers not working behind coated windshields. Anyone
has experiences with this?

Thanks in advance,

Eric.

It works on my 2001 and 1998 Camrys. My guess would be that it works
on the 1997 too.

But if not, I've found that you can buy a remote GPS antenna that
mounts to your roof for under $20, and then route it to the PDA.

By the way, welcome to PDA/GPS navigation! I recommend Garmin. Very
popular forum here:

Here's the product itself:

Ahoy.

I run a Garmin Quest on the driver's side of the window in high and low
positions. I never has a reception problem at all. I'm guessing though
that the common reception footprint in your part of the planet would
make a big difference....

Bottom line: none of the decent modern units are gonna have a problem
behind windshields....
