In the "Note" area he states what I say: if you have the hot weather package, you will have problem with GPS signal passing through the windscreen.
I can confirm this is the case: this athermal windscreen is very strong and does not have a zone with the athermal treatment remove like on more modern athermal windscreen, therefore GPS signal is extremely weak and lose signal really often, even in open area. Tried 2 different car GPS and 2 different antenna, (even one also doing Glonass) and same result each time... :/
