    I've got a different unit to that but put my GPS antenna on the metal bar that goes across the car behind the glove box. Regularly get around 8 to 10 satellites.

    Sorry to hijack the thread but can you got a better GPS antenna to the stock vx units? My reception is rubbish sometimes

    Afraid I can't help there, I've got a Sino Smart unit, car wasn't originally fitted with a factory nav. Maybe ask by putting a separate thread in the appropriate section, you'll have better luck getting a response.

    That's the speaker for indicator & vehicle warning sounds. It needs to be connected and the volume level set in the App
