Give your Ultimate GPS V3 a boost with this external active antenna. This GPS antenna draws about 10mA and will give you an additional 28 dB of gain. It's got a 5 meter long cable so it will easily reach wherever you need it to. The antenna is magnetic so it will stick to the top of a car or truck (or any other steel structure)

Comes with a standard SMA connector on the end. If you want to connect to Adafruit's Ultimate GPS V3 module, be sure to pick up a uFL to SMA adapter!

GPS not included.

  1. Review by Peter verified purchaser

    A good quality active GPS antenna with SMA connector and generous cable. This allows you to setup in the lab or office and have the antenna part outside with a clear view of the sky. In my case I found that using the antenna I was able to retrieve more of the GPS received data than with the GPS module inbuilt patch antenna alone.
    After about 5 minutes from a cold start I had GPS lock and NMEA sentences on screen using Tera Term.

  2. Review by David verified purchaser

    I bought one of these for a cheap ebay ublox 7-M GPS unit I am using as a PPS source for NTP. Working well on a window ledge. Before - 2 to 6 satellites and long periods without a lock. After - 5 to 11 satellites and consistent position/time data. (Posted on 13/06/2018)

  5. Review by Ben - Works well verified purchaser

    I ordered one of these antennas for a GPS NTP server project. It arrived after just two days (I live in Sydney) and works well. The antenna provides a significant signal strength boost when measured using cgps (part of gpsd).

    One consideration worth noting for this antenna is it includes an internal magnet for mounting on metal surfaces. This is ideal for cars and similar, but may not suit your application if you require a permanent stationary solution (eg such as providing a clock for an NTP server). (Posted on 1/06/2014)
