Re: How A-GPS works. Myths explained, gps simplified.

And, this came up when discussing if an external antenna will help GPS location or not, so I figured it be a good addition here: The external antenna port is strictly for reception on the radio (voice, walkie, data) and not for the gps at all. However, you have to understand how the assisted GPS wor...

Re: Husband

So, basically, he didnt trust you, proved his suspicions correct, and now holds proof that you, in one form or another, were incapable of keeping your wedding vows.

Re: Answer to "can i use an ext. antenna"

how covert do you want, and how much do you want to spend.

if its a pelican box, and i had a decent budget, i'd use a transit style or low profile public safety style antenna.

depends on what you're willing to spend and what you're willing to do to install it.

transit/low profile NMO mount antennas come in the SMR band.

Let me take a picture of what it looks like on the truck.

its iden 800/900 only.
However, because the phone relies so much on the towers for agps, it'll improve the gps signal accuracy and acquisition immensely.

I've got one on all the trucks with their assorted gps units. Really helps the signal.

You need wilson part number 354008 (i3xx series adapter) and a nextel compatible external a...
