Metallic based window sun film will effect satellite signal strength.

ya, i knew metallic film can delay gps lock in time, but my car is not tinted with any film

Any ideas why my garmin a50 take long time to lock in?

Or should i go to garmin service center to enquire the cause? btw, where is garmin service center in perak and selangor or kl? Will they service my garmin a50 since it is garmin -asus device whereby they are no longer in collaboration.
