Good gps antenna for stablizing your gps reception – PG-174 Digital GPS Antenna Reviews

posted by Galadhrim on 02/02/2009 Certified Owner

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
The antenna is sturdy;
The cable is quite long, which can be useful for hiding your equipment behind the dashboard;
The top is magnetic so it sticks on/under the hood;
Cons:
The connector is quite small and sometimes lets loose when its relocated, but when not moved it stays connected;
The reception is not perfect, but TomTom always shows 4/5-5/5 satellites, which is near the max.
Other:
The connector does not fit on a HOLUX GR-230, the connector on this antenna is quite small.
Bottomline:
Get this antenna if you want a cheap antenna to get better and a more stable reception.
