Title: Any problems with GPS satellite reception outside the US?
Post by: mdxix on December 26, 2011, 05:53:12 pm
I have used my Garmin Edge in the US, Europe, Middle East, and East Asia without problems. Reception seems as strong as ever, indicating accuracy of about 3m.

Have you had problems with satellite signal reception when traveling outside the US? Where?

I never had any problems using my GPS in Europe, Asia nor the US. Being from Europe most extensive use was of course in Europe. Only in areas with e.g. dense forests reception can be less resulting in errors on speed and inclination but as such never had any problems in finding the correct route.

The G stands for Global. The US Air Force designed it to work well everywhere.
