    Huh. Drill a hole, and mount it. Run the wires where you need/want them.

    You need a receiver to attach between the antenna and PC. Obviously, you'll need a receiver that has a connector for an external antenna. OEM-style receivers are your best bet.
    Will it work better than a common 'puck' style receiver (like the BU-353)? Not much better.
    It will, however, cost more.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    Where can we find this receiver? does anyone have any examples of setups using this external antenna? what USB GPS receivers have a connector for an external antenna?

    Search the forums for OEM GPS

    Someone is looking at a module with dead reckoning capability, as well
