I've used cell phones and hand held GPS in many vehicles, but the MDX seems to have enough metal that it absolutely blocks reception. Unless I put my cell phone or GPS on the dash under the windshield, they go crazy trying to find signals. Tried opening the sun roof cover, and that doesn't help either. Here's a thought from a techno-geek, looking for feedback. Reflective (or antireflective) coatings on windows are conductive. Could the window shading be the problem?

I haven't tried my GPS, but my cell phone works great in the MDX - no problems at all.

Like AcuraMDX2002, no problem with the cell phone -- and no GPS, so don't know about that. A friend has an ML-320, and cell phones that work in my MDX have a rough time in his ML. Go figure...

Do you have a metallic tint? Some have suggested that causes interference for the GPS.

No problems with our cell phones ...

... and we have the Navi - isn't that a GPS?
