: Cellular reception

I haven't been to SB for a couple years but I could never get a signal. I also didn't get get a satellite signal on the Nav when I picked up my car. Is that still the case in SB?

Hmm. I have never had a problem with NAV (BMW or Lexus), and cell signal problems haven't been an issue for me around that area in almost ten years. I have ATT/Cingular GSM, what carrier are you with?

I'm with Cingular now. Last time I was there I had Sprint PCS. As I recall, a lot of folks at Bimmerfest were having signal problems.

It was an assumption with the Nav problem. It didn't work when I picked up the car in SB but worked as soon as I returned to San Diego. I figured it was probably the same problem that caused the cell phones not to work.

Anyway...that's good news.

for a while sprint had hardly any reception in this area... sprint is made for larger cities... they have now become more "small town" friendly, but being that you are now with cingular you should have little to no deadspots...
