Will the windscreen on 307s affect the satellite reception on the GPS? I have read that some windscreens do give problems with GPS reception, mainly Renaults.

Shouldnt think so My neighbour has only ever had issues with his Renault Espace as they have a special coating on the windscreen to help stop glare from the sun or something.

yes, it can cause problems. after the original navi system failed, we used a Tom Tom and it had problems....the windscreen split and had to be replaced and the problems disappeared.

I am going to look a bit dumb here, but how did the replacement windscreen do? was it a different type? ie more tint, no tint?

The windscreen was fitted by Car Glass (Auto Glass) at the rquest of the insurance company, they use screens manufactured for them by Pilkington which do not have a tint in them

A GPS with a SIRF III chip or later should not hav problem. I used my Garmin Nuvi in my 307 SW wih heat protective windscreen without problem.

Thanks for all of your replies. It looks as if it is just down to weather conditions.

My TomTom works in the drawer under the seat. It's set to switch on when power is applied and if I've left it in the drawer I can hear the speed camera warnings

Mine is on a mount on the dash, not on the windscreen. I intend to add some details of this sometime in the future, a sort of how to and review.
