Default Car Dock

It seems to be working, but for some reason lately I get more signal unplugged from it than I do when I am plugged in.. All the sudden one day I stopped getting a strong signal but everynow and then Itll come through.

Check the antenna. I have been told that the thing that breaks most often is the antenna. The wire might have gotten pinched or otherwise damaged if it is exposed.

Also, check its position. I keep mine in the window just behind the rear seats of my car (not as good of reception as outside but a bit more protected from the elements. Once or twice it slid down near the rear seat headrest and my signal dropped. I just moved it back to its original position and it worked great.

I have it on the back of my trunk. This morning it picked up fine but tonight it kept "acquiring signal" I took it out of the dock and was hitting 2 bars inside the car.

Do you have another antenna to check with. My first car dock was faulty, it had the aquiring signal message with the car antenna, then I put on a home dock antenna and got the same message. Exchanged the dock (the antenna was fished through the car) and everything is fine.
