Would MaxQData's GPS receivers be able to function in a large warehouse? I'm looking at an indoor karting application in addition to the other race cars, and I was wondering if it might be possible to gather data there as well.

Thanks!

Hi Andy,

If the warehouse has a plastic or fabric roof, yes. Fiberglass and wood would probably be OK as long as they are not too thick. If it has an all-metal roof, probably not (at least not to the accuracy you would want). GPS won't go through metal. You need clear line of sight to the majority of the sky.
