Thumbs up External Garmin Antenna Recommendation


I found that my NAVII lost reception many times in what I felt were very mild conditions (small hills and while downtown among tall buildings). The small hills are the foothills located in Northern California.

I purchased the following external antenna (Gilsson MCX Antenna). Testing in the same location I previosly lost reception, I now receive at least three to four satellites.

The total cost was $28.76 including shipping (and tax if in CA). I was able to pick my cable length (3', 9, 16' - I think) along with straight or right angle connection. I purchased on a Friday morning and received my package on the following Monday (USPS).
