    Yes it has been reported that some cheapo Dash-Cams RF suppression is so bad that the RF interference causes problems with the reception of the GPS/Satellite signal
    I use a nothing special Maxtek Dash-Cam never had a problem

    Thanks for you reply, does the Maxtek Dash-Cam come with speed linked to it as well?

    Hi,

    Have a Go 6200 on a Brodit mount and a Nextbase 312 installed professionally by Halfords and like YFM never had an issue. a3591615-8979-444a-82fa-d855e2a33149.jpg

    I've a dash cam (Viofo A119S) by the rear-view mirror, and my TomTom's in the bottom-right corner of the windscreen - never had any interference problems.
