Do you mean an external antenna? No the Oregons don't have that ability. But, why do you need one?

 

.....because they really need one to reduce their sensitivity to multipath errors.

 

.. the Oregon internal antenna is a patch style, right? Most external antennas that I'm aware of use a patch style too. Why would using an external patch antenna reduce multipath errors?

The reason you need it is because the ability to get satellites (particularly WAAS which is almost never seen) on the Oregon is the worst of any receiver they have ever made. And it gets worse when you pass within 20 feet of a large tree. I ditched mine and got a Colorado.

 

Garmin should be embarassed at their decision to go away from the helix antenna.
