Thanks in anticipation

Heat reflective (athermic?) screens can "block" some of the signal. Not all cars have them fitted, usually only the cars with climate control rather than manual air con. The best way to tell is to look at the windscreen from outside your car if it has a blue/purple look to it you have a heat reflective screen.
