Hi folks. I dont know if this helps, but my kids bought me a "Talex Lite" speed camera detection system (like the one here... http://www.talex.co.uk/home/default.asp
) as they found it humourous that my 1.6 Auto Scenic (aka Le Wheelie-Bin Francais) would ever attain such a speed to require such a device !!!
Its passive, working via GPS and an inbuilt database an has no external antenna. Point is... I mount it on the flat-ish bit just above the centre air vents on the dash and it aquires the GPS signal fairly quickly. My Scenic has a coated windscreen, but maybe I get away with (next to) no GPS signal loss because of the panoramic sunroof (I dont know it its coated like the windscreen?).
Just occasionally, when it looses the signal, its built in speed indicator goes cuckoo and reports my speed as 160mph....... I wish
But that tends to be specific to geography e.g. the Cheadle sewage farm on the M60
