Do GPS antennae have an electronic front and rear?
When physically attaching an antenna to an airplane there is a designed direction for strength and best aerodynamic airflow.
But, if I mount a GPS antenna inside the airplane on a glare shield, does the orientation matter?

Hi Stan,

When installing our GPS antenna on the glareshield we did not pay any attention to the orientation.
Everything has been woring great since then, even in the hangar.

Furthermore, if orientation did matter, reception would depend on the heading of the airplane, which is not desirable.

Hope this helps,

Best regards,
Gilles

No . . . they are omni-directional
