Perfect if you have windshield-heating – GPS External Digital Antenna with MMCX Connector and 3-Meter Cable (1.5Ghz) Reviews

Pros:
I am driving a Ford Mondeo which has heating in the front windshield which blocks GPS signals (or at least weakens them a lot). Connecting this antenna to my GPS receiver really solves this issue. I always get more then enough satellites and even in very tough environments (forests, cities.
It has a magnetic base which makes it very easy to mount it on the top of your car.
I have mounted it for over a month and it still is right where I have mounted it.
The cable is quite long; this allows you to place your GPS receiver virtually anywhere you would like in your car.
Cons:
Haven't found any yet; it just works!
Other:
I wasn't sure the connector would fit my GPS receiver (a white label bluetooth GPS) but since this article sells at such a low price I wasn't scared to take the risk and now I am glad I did. Apparently these kind of connectors are quite standard which means that if you have a connector on your GPS this antenna will probably just work.
Bottomline:
If you have bad reception on your (bluetooth) GPS receiver; check this out. You will not be dissapointed!
