My GPS Antenna did not work properly the last few month, the Sat Icon in Carminat was red about 90% if time. I opened the antenne, some salty water (during winter, i do not live close to the sea...) destroyed (?) parts of the antenna, or some water was in the cable? Well, I replaced the GPS Antenna by a VDO compatible model (Carminat Nav is just an OEM Model of the 5000 Series, afaik) for 22 Euros. I put it close to the window, where Renault put the FM Antenna, under the grey plastic. You can`t see it...
It works fine, enough sats to calculate position and height...
