    i guess yeah you can if you had high enough quality components but considering the amount of signal is so so so weak that you receive, you'd need some pretty damn good cable and high quality solder to get it working as well as it can do - also from my gps (bu 303) the antenna is pretty much hard soldered to the pcb and is the largest thing in the shell, instead, make your mouse water proof and stick it outside

    maybe you can find an Idea in that Forums threat, there they build in an GPS reciever into an VW Triplex antenna. I builde on into an Audi Triplex antenna. great revievment (9-15 sats permanent)

    noone can see them, they are waterproof ... perfekt solution

    thats strange, i added a Link last time, where is it gone?

    here its again:
    http://www.car-pc.info/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=639

    It's an german Car-PC Forum.

    I don't know when, but within the next time I want to "rebuild" my antenna, because my GPS modul was much to big, so I had to remove the whole Radio and Cellular antenna - part. thats now in the car. I added an Wire at the Antenna contact, and tgough the cartop, to the external electronics (hope that works)

    No problem, I tried babel fish but the translation didn't make much sense. Thanks in advance.
