It would see the sky - if it weren't for the windscreen coating :( -
so for us having a car with such coating, we still have to use a
satellite "repeater" or an external antenna with a cable.
However - the GPS710 doesn't seem to have a map display, so the user
won't be able to see other moving or fixed stations in the vicinity.
Back to the GPSMAP 276/278 (well, and still the external antenna)
