I have my 9500ix mounted lower, ad I don't seem to have the same issue. It seems to have the GPS signal most of the time. I do have the IR windshield.I've installed the Escort 9500ix just below the rear view mirror. On the Alfa it acquires GPS signal maybe 30% of the time. Never had this in any of my cars before. Could this be due to the UV blocking windshield? Any thoughts.
