Handheld GPS in a Merc?

Does anyone use a handheld GPS in a current Mercedes (with it's original window tinting)? Ive had a Garmin Emap for a while now, I find that it's performance in seeing satellites to be very much hampered comparde with the unit sitting in 4 other cars. Could this be because the Mercedes original (light green) window tint have metallic contents in it?

Re: Handheld GPS in a Merc?

The green color is made by increasing the iron content of the glass, but it doesn't affect GPS. What model are you driving? I use a Garmin III and it works just fine in my C and ML. The new S Class has metal coated glass in all positions. There is a trapazoid shaped area in the w/s near the bottm that has been treated to allow devices like radar detectors and GPS to work. If you place the unit there is should work better.
