  • Non-USB GPS replacement antenna for G4?

    The connector broke off the end of my G4's GPS antenna (where it plugs into the back of the G4).

    Anyone know of a compatible replacement (not USB; I am already using up all my hub's USB ports, and besides I do not want another wire going into my glove box where my USB hub is).

    Thanks.

    You should just be able to pick up a replacement active antenna, the "gps" itself is inside the G4, what broke sounds like just the connector for the extended antenna. Check eBay or around, shouldn't be much.

      I had bought a new antenna, but I was waiting until I got it installed until I replied to my post. Coincidentally, that just happened today (finally!).

      The antenna I got was the following:

      (The annoying logo on the antenna comes off pretty easily with nail polish remover.)

      For other people looking for a G4 replacement GPS antenna, you need a male MCX connector (must be a straight connector; the 90 degree ones won't fit).
