The sensor is in the dash, below the screen. When it loses the signal (seen this just a couple of times) it uses a very sensitive yaw sensor and the vehicle speed to keep track of where you are. Hasn't got it wrong yet. The display always shows where you are (Road Name, Town) on the bottom of the screen, and shows what the signpost will say for your turn at the top of the screen (M1, Luton Airport, The North). If it doesn't know the sign, it gives the road number or name. The nice lady says "In two hundred yards, take the fourth exit on to the A five oh one". Near a junction, the map splits into two. On the left is whatever you had displayed at your set zoom level, and on the right is a close up of the junction with your little red car moving along the roads. It's neat and very easy to use.
