    I have read that carbon fiber can interfere with the GPS module reception.

    Does anyone know about this or have had experience with a problem because of carbon fiber wraps?

    CF can attenuate radio signals but the wraps aren't usually real CF but rather vinyl decals.

    I use it all the time... it's just vinyl wrap with "carbon fiber look" ... if there was actual carbon fiber in there it would be much more expensive :ugeek:
