Garmin in Volvo

My car us presently in the workshop for some bodywork and I have been driving one of my sister’s cars these last few weeks. A fortnight ago, I was driving around in her Volvo and found that my Garmin GPS was acting up and constantly losing touch with the satellites.

Just to be clear, the same GPS works well in the other cars that I’ve driven – Hyundai, Honda, Nissan, etc. It just does not work very well in the Volvo. I don’t know for certain why but I am just guessing that the already weak GPS signals are being weakened further by the thicker skin of the car.

Whatever the reason, I now know that it’ll be a small concern for me if I ever plan to buy a Volvo in the future but that’s unlikely to happen as I didn’t like the drive.
