    sat nav not picking up

    using my satnav today in my a4 cabbie and it couldnt fine where i was so i checked to see how many satelites i was picking up it was only showing 1 .... got home and moved the gps anenna and i got 3 ... so i guess i got the gps in the wrong place ... i had it next to the heater box just behine the glove box .. theres a little gap so i put it there worked fine when i did it 2 mouths ago ... then moved it to the black metal strip just near the air bag and got 3 sats but put glove box back on and down to 1 so anyone know the best place for me to mount my gps antenna in a 2004 cabbie
