    gps with external antenna jack?

    been looking...cant find. is there a USB gps receiver that has the provisions for an external antenna... or is this a mod only type thing?

    really interested in one of the all in one antennas. id like to be able to tuck away all the external devices.

    i just bought the Engenius Senao so i have the wifi taken care of. just need to get the GPS unit off the dash now.

    GPSlim 236 has an external antenna plug. The receiver works as a USB receiver with an optional ($19) USB cable. Otherwise it works as a Bluetooth GPS receiver. The optional external antenna is also about $19 if memory serves.

    But if all you need is as you say "get the GPS unit off the dash", most GPS receivers (mouse-type) do have magnetic base, so perhaps that is all you need.
