I have heard the heated windscreen can block the signal for the sat nav.

I used my iPhone as a navigator, until I got my 2011 facelift XF. In the XF it was practically useless due to trouble finding the satellites. I could get some contact, but it was lagging, and the speed indicator was jumping up and down while driving. I bought a Garmin navigator, and it worked. I concluded, that a dedicated navigator had better antennas than the iPhone back then. My XF back then didn't even have heated windscreen.

Yes, my Road Angel failed to work in the best position. In the end I moved it to the near side of the screen.
