Satellite radio signals are best received in areas with a clear view of the open sky. In areas where there are tall buildings, trees, tunnels or other structures that may obstruct the signal of the satellites, there may be signal interruptions. Other circumstances that may result in signal loss include driving near a wall, steep cliff, hill or driving on the lower level of a multitiered road or inside of a parking garage.

To help reduce this condition, satellite radio providers have installed groundbased repeaters in heavily populated areas. However, you may still experience reception problems in some areas.
