Answer

Multiple reasons exist for GPS Jamming which are unlikely but could easily cause the issues.

  • A GPS jamming device in the vehicle is blocking GPS signals (could be coming from a location around the area you are).
  • The placement of the GO Device, where the GO device may be physically located in an area where GPS signals are blocked
    • Thick walled materials such as metal (steel) plates can constrict GPS signals* 
  • The vehicle is travelling in an area with dense foliage
    • Dense foliage is also known to attenuate GPS signals
  • The vehicle is traveling underground
