Hi All,
I'm a newcomer to this GPS malarkey and have bought the above 'entry level' package. It's a brilliant bit of kit and works a treat in my Frontera (even off-road for my very rural work-places - Jane gets a bit queer when I go down the pink dotted tracks and starts pointing a green arrow back at me!)
My query is: can I get an extension cable so I can fix the GPS receiver up in the roof-light of my camper? I tried a bog standard rj11 extension cable but no joy, presumably the signal and/or power source was degraded - any ideas/advice would be greatly appreciated...

any phone line extender (all four wires connected) should do. You should get a good 12 metres out of the RS232 protocol...

Thanks for the tip. Is it possible to buy an extension cable from any of the companies advertising on your site? My rj11 modem cable didn't work; would I have to connect the 4 wires differently if I made one up? Sorry to sound a bit obtuse; I'm a civil engineer, wires don't really do it for me...
