    Quick question - GPS TV??

    Is it possible to use your GPS receiver as an antenna for TV? A simple no will probably do!

    No, but there may be some combination antennas that are designed to work for GPS, telephone, radio, and perhaps even TV. Check store.mp3car.com to see what they sell.

    No, but even a length of wire will help reception. I'm sure you can Google up the specs for the proper length.

    Most reports of TV reception in a moving vehicle have been poor. Even with a manufactured antenna.

    I've tried a few digital arials, no good. Analogue signals are set to be removed from my part of the UK next year so not worth building anything solid for that.

    I'm going to start a new thread now to see if anyone has successfully got TV working in their car. Thanks for your help.
