Nice bloke, Brian is his name . Must be, he drives an 80 series!

Peter, it is a is an RA-45 GPS re-radiating antenna he sells to suit you ($150).

On my emap, I use the SM-76 ($100), I bought from here and find it works well. Magnetic base, just throw on the roof when I head off.

Try www.ja-gps.com.au as well. They might be a bit cheaper, but a bugger to find what you want on their site.

I have a Garmin Etrex Venture and bought the re-radiating aerial from this site. It works beautifully, consistently giving me full signal to 10 satelites. In the bush (Toolangi and Big River) it gave be better coverage than ever, although a few times I lost all signal in heavy tree coverage and wet weather.

Can definately recommend one and I believe the shop here sells them for just under $150. Just Do It!

I use one of these with my Magellan 320 and it works extremely well. I was surprised just how well it worked. Dramatically better reception than I used to get through the windscreen, and it has allowed me to mount my GPS in a less conspicuous spot rather than sitting high on the dash.

I got mine from GPSOZ but they sell them on this site now I think. $150
