Good one!!!! – PG-174 Digital GPS Antenna Reviews

posted by wilmot on 07/13/2008 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
- Magnetic base allows placing even outside of the car.
- Really long wire!
- Worked well with my holux gpslim 236 bluetooth gps device!!!!
- The problem of gps devices is obvious when navigating throughout tall buildingsso I did the obvious: i parked between two tal buildings and without the antenna go a fix to 3-4 sats!!! I plugged it in and voila back to 8-9!!
Cons:
It wouldn't plug in very tightly with my holux device and comes off very easily
Don't know what will hapen if I place it on the exterior of the car during high speeds, maybe it will fall off.
Other:
Bottomline:
Buy it for navigating in the city, no nedd for it when in open grounds!!!
