    Question: who has experience with the external antenna of the 408?

    Normally I use the EM406. Recently I installed a unit in a building with hardly GPS signal. I got no strings; outside the building it worked fine. I changed over to the 408, connected the external antenna and installed it outside. No signal. I placed the whole unit outside and voila, it worked immediately. So I have the strange feeling the external antenna does not have any effect. I cannot find a command in the Globalsat manual to force the EM408 to use the external antenna so I presume that it uses both the internal and the external as the latter is connected.

No public wish lists :(
