    Looks like a mmcx connector. Try to google for mmcx and see if that'll lead you somewhere. I've purchased RF connectors from mouser.com so maybe they can help you to get the right connector.

    What's up Kal!
    I vote mmcx too. If you want to be sure, find a local radio/HAM/CB shop and take the part in. Usually every big-ish city has a place like this, they're just sometimes hard to find.

    that is a MCX connector, MMCX are much smaller than that. Why not just use the antenna built into the car?

    other than that almost any mag mount GPS antenna will work for you as long as it's a MCX connection and not a SMA like some.

    I am not sure how people can tell you what it is with out some better pictures. get some close up of both connectors, the one on the antenna cable, and of the jack.

    Until then, I think everyone is guessing. I can assure out, it is not an MMCX. It MIGHT be an MCX, but it is hard to tell fromthe picture. Take a pic of JUST the connector.

    My bad, guys. That's what I meant, MCX. That's what's on my Garmin.

    i am using the one in the car now but i was downtown the other night and kept losing signal. i figured if im gonna do this thing ill do it right. i want something to boost my signal so i can get better accuracy. ill admit. i suck when it comes to knowing whats the best antenna out there. so if anyone knows what would be good to buy and add on here let me know

    Can't see what it is. Out of focus & too dark.
