    Would cargo box on roof block satellite nav. antenna?

    So many Range Rovers end up having big roof racks and I'm wondering if I put my Thule or Yakima cargo box on the roof, where it would be over the shark-fin antenna, would that block my satellite navigation signal?

    I used to have a garming navigation sitting on the dash in my old car and if something screened it, it would lose it's signal.

    I found that driving from Portland, OR to Northern California recently having the cargo box on top did not affect the navigation at all...Even off the freeway it still worked well...so my thought is that it is not affected at all.

    I've got the Safety Devices rack on mine and I've put 2 Pelicans and a Tent-Cot up there (totally covering the shark fin) with no effect on GPS or radio reception, so I'd imagine you'd be fine

    Thanks for the info!

    I posted the same question on the MkIII forum (2003+ HSE) and got no replies. Why are you Sport guys so much more active???
