horizontal is preferred. a coiled cable should be a problem. I had 5M of coiled cable in my cluster area....and it worked without a problem.
Mounting it vertically is not a good idea, the signal from the satellites is VERY weak and you should give the antenna the best chance to receive the signal. The antenna is most sensitive on the face opposite the mounting face.laxman1100 said:I have my GPS antenna mounted behind my cluster, but didn't have room to mount it horizontally under the dash. Instead, it's mounted vertiaclly. Will that cause an issue?
Also, the excess cable is wraped and tied close to the antenna. I was reading that having the cable coiled could cause a loop, is that true and how much inaccuracy does that cause?
I've gotten as many as 7 satellites and on occasion, get zero.
