Yes i think so, it really is a must have feature for a modern dashcam.
Yes, I knew this from 3 years ago.

Hi hi!
I purchased the SGGCX2PRO back in November.
Quick question; is it possible that I have a GPS antenna that is meant to be mounted on dash even though it says it's a windshield mount antenna?
My unit is very slow to acquire a satellite signal and could swear I read somewhere that this is a possibility.
The wire isn't long enough for me to mount onto my dash.

Too many ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
No it will be a window mount GPS, placement and the vehicle itself may impact how quick it aquires signal, what vehicle is it and where is it mounted?

It's an '18 Toyota Tacoma. I have the cam mounted to the right of the mirror (near the stock GoPro mount) and the antenna to the left of the mirror.

GPS can take a couple minutes to turn green when it’s a fresh cold lock. (Right one)

Also, Red mic icon (left one) means microphone has been muted. (No sound is being recorded). Press mic button if you want sound being recorded and left icon turns green

Ok. I do have mic “off” intentionally.

Ill be getting in my 17’ Forester in little bit for another drive. Ill double check again and report back.

You might have the type of glass that blocks RF signals or there potentially something wrong with the GPS (rare but possible) and I can send you a new one

Make sure you have the GPS connector plugged in all the way. You would not be the first person to think it's inserted completely when it's not.

I did check for the plugs being fully seated. They are.
My car is just a 17’ Subaru Forester. I know when I 1st installed the unit the icon was green. I just lately noticed its not.
Just drove home now and its still:


Should I pull it off the windshield and extend it outside to see if it locks ?
Might not restick though

10 years, many dashcams
Look like you will be joining me and another person in the exclusive club of people that had SG GPS antennas go bad on them.
Its pretty small and exclusive, we even have a secret handshake.
