Gps Antenna In Is200

Recommended Posts

Im wanting to fit an external GPS antenna for my little Bluetooth GPS reciever and Im after some tips as to the best place to put it.

Ive seen some people fixing them just below the parcel shelf but the cable on the antenna for my device is only 2m so I doubt it will stretch as far as the ciggy lighter (my planned location for the device as thats where the power is).

I have no idea about cable routing as Computers are my thing, not cars. The gps antenna is magnetic so will fitting its mag base to the windshield with a sticky pad going to damage performance.

Many Thanks

I leave my clip-on reciever in teh dash tray and it works fine. When I had my IS200 windscreen replaced, they remove the plastic trim covering the wiper linkages... that would be an ideal location for a magnetic GPS antenna :).

I got a Bluetooth GPS receiver and just put it in the arm rest box thing and it works Ok. Never had problems with it, gets me to where I want to go.

Suppose the accuracy may be affected but it's a car not a guided missile :lol:
