A6 heat reflective screen and sat nav/ road angel

Hi. Is anyone able to assist/advise?

I have a new road angel (which worked fine in my previous car) but since obtaining a 2000 model A6 quattro sport it does not pick up a gps signal. Clearly, my car has a "thermal/heat reflective screen" so I have bought and external GPS antannae.....but where the hell do I mount it? I have tried all locations around the screen, to no avail. I am also buying a satnav....but will have the same problems with this also.

Can anyone advise where to mount the additional GPS antannae(s) so I can reliably pick up the GPS signal?

Of course, I could try and route through the bulkhead and position on/near the grill....or wiper blades etc....but what about water ingress or some scrote nicking them?

Any assistance greatly appreciated.

For clarity, my car is an A6 TDI 2.5 Quattro Sport

Mike

mac321 does it eventually connect, or not at all, I have the A8tdi with reflective heated front screen and my angel works great, one point if the voltage is not high enough it will not connect, I had a dodgy connection in myGS300 lexus only i volt short and it would not connect, check voltage first.
