    Default External antenna for Garmin 205w

    Hi,

    Recently I got Garmin 205w from a friend and the antenna has some damage on cable.

    I have few questions about the antenna.

    First that antenna is for GPS receiver or just for FM?

    Can I use any other antenna with long cable? For example something like [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Please suggest.

    Thank you.

    It is only FM traffic antenna! There is no support for external GPS antenna in Garmin 205w. You only try to replace ceramic patch antenna on system plate if it is cause of problem...

    Thank you. The unit is working fine just that my antenna lead is broken.

    Can I extend the traffic antenna using a piece of another wire?
