    why not using white wire

    well, i connected my GPS 15L-W to my mobo and everything run well, just:
    could anyone tell me the reason why we are not using white wire to connect to serial ground (pin 5 on com2) as shown in garmin PDF?

    The antenna that goes on the roof of my car is less than a quarter of the size of the smallest GPS mouse, so its more of a stealthy look...

    When you say gps mouse are you actually refering to the gps mice that are sold or the general all in one package?

    Hi all. A few years ago when I was into this whole carpc thing much more I went and bought up some OEM gps stuff, got it to work in my house, and then promptly put it up to never use it again. The module I got to work was an sveesix module that can be seen here: http://www.rodaxwireless.com/images/jpg/trimbleCM3.pdf

    with some antenna that I have no clue what it is (I can snap some pics and attempt to identify it for you if you want). I also have another OEM gps module that I can't remember what it was (I can attempt to identify this too) as well as 2 trimble antennas. One of the antennas needs a connector and the other one doesn't fit the sveesix module (the reason I ended up buying the third antenna).

    If anyone is interested in this stuff I am willing to let it go really cheap just to keep from having it sit forever and eventually be thrown away.

    I want to improve my reception, but this stuff is kind of scaring me away...

    Is there a kit that comes with all connectors and stuff that I can plug to the serial header in my MOBO, and plug into a antenna externally?

    Or is there a GPS mouse that is external-antenna capable that I can use?

    Or a kit that just has everything required?

    Please, I live in Brazil and the satellite signal is awful here in the dense city, so I really need something better than my bu-303...

    One thing Im not clear on is the persistant power to the device. It was mentioned that it has a battery in it thats good for 21 days. Is this a rechargable battery? Im assuming it has be...
