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.

  3. 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)
