    help TMC external antenna that amplifies the radio signal lost

    Hi guys, I`m using a Nuvi 1350T with Gtm25 I bought second hand and the person lost the external antena that amplifies the radio signal... I read some time ago that someone built one from an old pair of earphones, I found one that fits the whole but I don't want to try it out before I`m sure what i need to do... can anyone help me?

    I think you will do not have any problem! A many of phone use earphones as the external antenna for the radio signal. If you want to be sure one hundred percent you can cut off the speaking parts. Only wire be required for receiving of the radio signal!

    Also cut it to the correct length, The length of antenna is very important in all radio communications. Reception and transmission.

    This rule is not for TMC (FM). For example, for adhesive band antenna you can see next note: Cut to suitable length according size of your windshield!
