Hi all

I have had issues with my satnav since disconnecting the battery - red satellite and inaccurate clock display. After reading some former postes here, I feel it is plain to see the GPS Antenna may be at fault.

I have two questions -

1. - Where do I get an aftermarket antenna from? (the magnetic type I read of sounds good to me!) I have looked on ebay, but I'm not clear on connector etc. Could someone give me a hyperlink?

2. - Where in the boot space does the current antenna connect? This is obviously where I wish to connect the new antenna as I hear there is a connector somewhere there.

Your help would be very much appreciated as I'm rubbish at map reading! :crazy:

- J
