PP Stargazer GPS puck -- install on top or under dash?
I installed PP Stargazer a couple years ago and the GPS puck recently failed. PP replaced it under warranty, which was great. However, I'm wondering if my puck placement had any role in the failure. I installed it on top of my dash where it always had full sun exposure. I just read in the instructions that it could be installed under the dash, so I manually held the puck under my dash to see if it would make a successful satellite connection. It did -- at least that one time that I tested it.
Seems like installing the puck under the dash would keep it safe from harsh sun exposure, but I don't know if that is actually an issue. Anyone have suggestions on whether I should install the new puck under or over the dash? My only goal is to make the thing last longer.
Not sure how to deal with a long link?
