Be advised

  • Summary: Be careful ordering this product as it does not plug into all Garmin GPS units. I thought it would be a nice upgrade for preventing signal loss but my Garmin Nuvi has no place to plug it in.
  • Pros: Probably a good idea.
  • Cons: Isn't compatible for all Garmin GPS units

Great product

  • Summary: My Garmin 660 had quit picking up satellites and rather than send it to Garmin to be repaired (at a cost of $100+) I purchased this antenna. Plugged it in, turned on the 660, works like a charm!

Didn't work for me

  • Summary: I was really sureprised, given the other good reviews, to find that not only my c340 didn't register any signal improvements, but also the connector requires quite a bit of sterngth to be plugged into the GPS unit, and the small brass part at the end gets stuck into the GPS when you pull the anteena out. Didn't work for me, that's the honest truth.
  • Pros: unobtrusive design
  • Cons: Connector popped off and hard to plug in Haven't detected any improvements in signal

What a difference

  • Summary: My c320 would sometimes take 5 or 10 minutes to acquire satelites, but with this antennae the wait time has been drastically reduced. It finds me in no time flat. I put my gps in a permanent mount, and now I don't have to deal with the difficulty unplugging the antennae unless I'm removing the whole unit.
  • Pros: price, signal strength,
  • Cons: difficult to unplug from gps unit, but getting easier

Great for that extra boost

  • Summary: This antenna is a great value for the money. I use it to connect to my Garmin i3 in the car and bring it along in the field for use with my Garmin 60c. The antenna will boost my satellite receiver signal by one or two bars. This is helpful since both my Garmin units have older receiver chips and not the newer, more sensitive SiRFIII chip. Most of the time, it is mounted under my front window vent grill and the wire comes up at the end to connect to the GPS.
  • Pros: Very small and long cord.
  • Cons: The connector can be a bit hard to push on and pull out.

Great Antenna for a Garmin C320

ernestev, PriceGrabber

  • Summary: I think this antenna has helped my Garmin C320 quite a bit. While the unit itself has a good reception, the antenna helped it a lot in cities with tall buildings and in the woods. At times I used to lose signal downtown, but now I keep it far more often. Also, I feel like it acquires the satellites faster now than it did without the antenna. Like I said in th weakness, the only thing I dont love is having the cord sort of weave along the dashboard and out my window.
  • Pros: Increases the signal strength of the GPS unit. Allows for faster pickup of satellites.
  • Cons: At times I have problem with the cord in the door, I feel like rain or something could come in the place where the cord goes.

  • Summary: It does 'raise the bars':) It has magnetic base so mounting was easy but I can't figure out how to mount this thing on top of my car meanwhile keep the window fully closed. Any ideas?
  • Pros: Improved signal strength
  • Cons: None

Garman Remote antenna

  • Summary: Nice way to remotely mount your Garman GPS. I was able to put the C320 in the console below my radio and run the remote antenna to the top of my dash. I hid the antenna under the upper cover of my dashboard. It picks up signal slightly faster over the intergrated antenna. For me, I can now just close the cover of my console to hide my Garman!
  • Pros: Low profile, magnetic mount
  • Cons: limited mounting choices

GA 25MCX Low Profile GPS Antenna Review

TGE, PriceGrabber
10 August 2006
  • Summary: This low profile antenna does exactly what it is supposed to do - it increases the reception for your GPS unit. I have been using it on a GPSMAP 76CSx unit for improving the unit's reception while in the car. I place the antenna on the dash, the GPS unit in the compartment below the radio, which works great, especially with the car mount. This low profile GPS antenna is cheap enough that everyone who owns a GPS should have one.
  • Pros: Low price & good performance = excellent value
  • Cons: None

23 June 2006
  • Summary: The GA 25MCX Low Profile GPS Antenna arrived quickly and in the original packaging. The unit is very small and installs easily via magnetic attachment. It improved the reception in my car. I travel often, using rental cars of varying types and wanted a small portable antenna that I could take with me to use with my Garmin i5. This product fits the bill!
  • Pros: Small, portable, easy installation
  • Cons: None
