    Cellular WIFI Antenna?

    Hey all, My truck has a factory ONStar antenna. Which is basicly a cellular antenna. With this work with my WIFI if I connect it? I was able to use my factory XM antenna on my PCR buy just tracing back and a little soldering, But am unsure if that type of antenna in general will work........

    No.
    The antennas are tuned differently.

    There's a Hirschmann GPS2400 in the store here that does GPS, cellphone and wiFi: http://store.mp3car.com/ProductDetai...Code=COM%2D008
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    and it works quite well.

    Just be aware that you will need a GPS reciever to use the GPS.

    well, you can't adapt a cellular antenna to be a wifi antenna as far as I know, so you're going to have to add another antenna anyways, that one includes cellular, so you can remove the one youhave now and plug it into this one

    Thats the thing, It just sits there now! I don't use it. It looks alot like the one your showing me, But mine has a slight curve to it. And I don't really have the room for a flat mounting.......Sucks..........
