Hello,

I buyed the Pod GO Wireless. I used it in three different locations and i had always drop outs. One location was wide and tall, the other boths where one bigger room and one smaller room. The battery light is green, the battery is full. After playing a while  (20min) i get drop outs, connection is lost. Mostly when i stand with my guitar in front of my 100W Amp and play really loud, the connection get lost. If i turn away the guitar fronm the amp, connection is found again.When i play at home, it works fine.
COuld it be that loudness has an impact on function of the wireless system?

Well I'm certainly no physicist...but logic tells me that high amplitude sounds waves can't magically knock a wifi signal out of the air.

 

However, you do mention your position relative to the amp when the problem occurs... and given that the connection for this device relies on a clear line of sight between transmitter and receiver, my guess is that this where your problem lies. If facing your amp means that you've turned away from the PodGo, then you are now the obstacle between the transmitter and the receiver, which could explain the drop outs.

Hmm.. my amp is not more than 2m behind me, my pod go 6 in front of me. So if i turned to the amp, i am not more than 2m away from my pod go. And why the receiver and transmitter must see each other? I think there is no reason for that with this wireless technology. You should able to play if there is a small wall between the transmitter and receiver. Maybe i am wrong?
