    Good morning everyone. Am new in the forum. I have a question :

    What is the explanation to the fact that gps antennas should be oriented north?

    You don't have to do so

    the GPS (GNSS) satellites fly over all parts of the earth except the North and South poles, so you would only get better signals from the North if you was near the South pole, otherwise there is no advantage
