GPS Antenna Placement

The GPS antenna (excluding the Motorcycle GPS antenna) must be placed at least, 3 feet
(0.9 meters) away from any transmitting antenna, and the antenna must have a clear, unobstructed
view of the sky for best performance. The length of the cabling must be taken into consideration
before the installation is started.

GPS Connection

To ensure a secure connection of the GPS antenna cable's SMA plug to a radio's SMA jack, the
connector must be fully seated. If the connectors are not fully seated, the system will loosen. This
should be done by hand to ensure excess force is not applied. GPS positions as shown in

NOTE: Applying excessive force with a tool can cause damage to the antenna or the connector
(e.g. stripping threads, deforming the collar or connector, or causing the connector to twist in
the housing opening and break).
