Just bought an external GPS antenna for my O2 Orbit, for a very reasonable £12.

It works a treat - I get a very strong signal even indoors now. Antenna is unobtrusive, and comes with 5m cable so could be handy for mounting discreetly in the car. Worth checking out if you're getting weak signals or want to hide your PDA out of sight.

The unit I've got is unbranded. It plugs into the Orbit's GPS port (back of the unit, at the top, covered with a rubber flap which you prise off with the stylus). I presume the other Artemis devices have this?

Just do an ebay search for "orbit gps antenna" - that should throw up the link.
