Replace satnav with one which also has a mcx port I can connect my external antenna to. Suggestions of make/model please.

Can the windscreen be replaced with a 'normal' (non-heat reflecting), so I don't need to have a satnav which only connects to an external antenna. Will probably need replacing in any case because of chips.

I have a 2004 Laguna with the heat reflective windscreen and have no signal problems using my TomTom Go 520 in the car with it's internal receiver.
