Double GPS failure during Van's RV-7A evening flight - YouTube - FunPlacesToFly.com

An evening flight in a Van's RV-7A just to try out some new camera angles and filters. Then we noticed that both the panel mounted Garmin GNS 430 and Garmin 696 were not pulling up any GPS satellite signals. We spent the rest of the flight trying to get the units come up. We're still not sure what happened and why both units failed to lock into any GPS signals.
