    One alternative solution for you is to use an OEM GPS receiver. Search for OEM GPS. I use a Garmin GPS-25LV.

    I have a standalone GPS as well in my car. It's a Magellan Map 410 and the antenna twists off and I have a short extention so that I get a better signal.

    as far as GPS antennas and CarPCs ( which is what this place is about ) most use a BU-303 which has about a 6 foot cable.

    That's what I am looking for. hmm, but the spec is not too impressive. Thanks, I think you guided me to the right direction.

    I have an IOGear BT GPS, it can either sit on the dash or use an optional antenna. My plan is to have the antenna mounted out of site and the GPS in the glove box, then when I travel I can take the GPS but leave the antenna behind.

    I also have a Deluo USB GPS, mine doesn't have one but I think the newer ones support an external antenna.

    http://www.allsurplus.net/Axiom/ - $20 module that has an external antenna connector and serial interface.

    So far it is working great with an external antenna, much better signal reception than my previous Deluo gps mouse.

    Note - not affiliated in any way with the above product, just a happy customer.

    Elaborate more on "not too impressive".
