N95 8Gb - operating with slide shut

Can I use the GPS facility on this phone with the slide shut, I've tried turning the keypad lock off but the GPS still seems to die with the slide shut.

I don't use Nokia Maps, but for example Garmin is fully functional while slider shut.

Funny.

I use Viewranger and McGuider and both lose the GPS when the slider is shut?

When I say it dies it doesn't always completely but if you have a satellite log on screen when the slide is shut you can see that there is a noticeable decrease in signal and sometimes none - meaning that it is unusable with the slide shut.

The antenna is behind the keypad. Mine works most of the time when using Nokia maps.

Mine works most of the time with slider shut, although it is more precise with the slider open. I have a nice Brodit Proclip holder in my car and I use this Garmin+N95 8GB as my satnav, and I really like it in a landscape mode, with the slider shut. When it comes to looks, I prefer slider shut, but when I'm in a very busy traffic, some big city or something, I always use it with the slider open.
