Short Review. This adapter is used for connecting various additional navigation boxes with SMA connector to car OEM GPS antennas.
Device is meant for additional car navigation boxes connection to OEM GPS antenna installed by the manufacturer. With the aid of this adapter you can easily connect to OEM antenna without car wiring damage. There is also no need to drill car body for additional antenna installation outside.
Why do you need a GPS antenna adapter
Often it is rather difficult to install a new GPS antenna and retain high quality satellite signal reception. The most frequent problems are:
- It is impossible to install the GPS antenna in the way that doesn't spoil the car interior.
- Signal reflection: a lot of cars have windshields made of thermal glass, i.e. glass with metal film. This film will reflect satellite signals and this will affect the navigation software operation. Thus, even if you install the antenna under the windshield, the satellite signal reception will be rather poor or there will be no signal at all.
- OEM GPS antenna is installed in the place where devices with high frequency radiation modules cannot interfere with its operation. It is rather difficult to find such a place for an additional antenna.
