Just a quick note to say that I recently bought a TTG300 for use in my Citroen C5. It worked OKish, but satellite signal strength was weak through the reflective windscreen - usually no more than 2/3 ht bars. I decided to buy the 45cm re-radiating antenna from GPS World. It came one day later on a saturday on standard delivery (impressive). The unit has three cables from a splitter. 1m to re-radiating antenna, 3m to roof mounted mag mount block and 1m to the power socket which has the capability of piggy backing a second plug. I mounted the rod antenna just behind the TTG in the groove between the A post and dash top. Signal strength on sats is always now 90-100% . On a 600 mile round trip the signal never once fell below 4 bars and was usually 5. If you can't get the TTG official external aerial, this, I think, is just as good.

Hello MrRusty,
do you have a link (URL) for the antenna you bought; I know I'm dense but were did you actually get it from and what is the model??

thanks, it interests me since it would allow use of the Go in my car without the docking shoe.
