Grasscatcher Posted January 10, 2006 Share Posted January 10, 2006 I've got a Garmin external antenna that I've used for over 10 years on many many snowmobile trail mapping trips, many ATV mapping trips,as well as hiking trips with it velcro'd to my helmet or cap. Because of all that use and abuse, I now need to replace the MCX 90deg conector on the end of the cable. It has a couple of the little "ears" missing and doesn't fit as tight as it needs to in my GPSr. leaving "gaps" in my trails.......I hate trail gaps. Anyone have any experience with obtaining and replacing the MCX connector on external antennas? I would hate to have to buy a whole new 27 antenna because of a measly little cable end that shoud be easily replaceable. I'm in rural Colorado with few TV /Electronic repair choices. Garmin didn't have any ideas. Anyone have any comparison between a GA27 and Garmin's newer, less expensive one. That might be the way to go? However, the old one almost has sentimental value,'cause it's been a trusty companion for so long. Thanks for any suggestions Grasscatcher Quote Link to comment
