    Ok, here's my try


    the first thing you have to do is to get an Triplex antnna like one of these (each triplex is good enough it mustent be from VW or Audi or Bosch):

    http://cgi.ebay.de/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?...520168447&rd=1

    then open it and remove the original GPS reciever, I think you need to modify the bottom of the antenna (the metal) so that the GPS Module for the PC fits.
    if the rubber needs to be removed, use silicon to seal the antenna (so that it is waterproof).

    thats it.

    If you also need to remove the Radio and Cellphone Modules of the antenna because the GPS module ist to big (like mine ) simple solder an wire to the contakt point at the antenna and lead the cable trough the antenna foot to the Radio and Cell-Phone modules inside your car.
    All connections after the antenna foot all wires should be split by an plug contact, thats fitting trough the hole in the sheet metal of the roof.

    thats it
    I hope that was understandably.
    like I said near future I want to modify my antenna, so i will make pics and show theme here to make it easier to show

    greets
    Dirk
