Smile sat nav repaired

Hi guys thanks once again for help in fixing my sat nav problem.had no sat signal and the thing was way out miles in fact of destination.after going to renault and being told its the reader gone sir and its 500-700 to fix i read up on problems on the forum,and with help from many members i tracked trouble to the antenna,80 + vat and fitting at dealer so read the tread on getting antenna from e-bay --new sat nav g.p.s antenna blaupunkt,vw,bmw,ford,audi,smb
bought on it came i removed the old plug from reader unit under glove box fitted new plug straight in,initialised the system and BINGO we have now got a working sat nav and the clock works again.There was enough wire on unit to thread it along inside moulding alongside door and out into boot where i fitted the magnetic receiver to underside of roof between headlining clipped headling back and i now am receiving 7 sats perfect and all for 9.99 plus postage,what a result...thanks guys.
