    Question Deluo GPS antenna modification help

    Can anyone point me to a tutorial on how to add an external antenna hookup to my GPS reciever. I plan on getting an external tri band antenna and will want to hook up my Deluo GPS module to it. Unfortuantly they don't have antenna hookups

    I am very comfortable with a soldering iron and fabrication/electronics.

    I just want to see some pictures of a mod before i get started.

    If anyone has passed by such a tutorial please pass the info along my way.

    Thanks

    I have got a old unit from them its a serial port type

    I had problems getting a lock in my car - I kept moving it around
    and no luck - I thought about that it had a magnet, and got a flat
    piece of metal - I stuck the GPS unit on top and BAM I got 4 to 6
    sats locked

    I have it mounted under my rear window as close to the glass
    as I can - its under the carpet on my rear shelf mounted to a
    square piece of metal - the metal is about 5 inches square

    If you can some how replace the antenna you could try this but
    its ugly

    yes take some pictures, i'm sure we can sort out what needs what. I attached a external antenna to my radioshack GPS that was not designed for an external antenna and it worked great.

    so maybe just get a piece of coaxial cable with a fme connector on that and solder the other end to your gps, that would keep the amount of connections low
