reradbattery.php Battery Re-Radiating Antenna Review (GARATX/GARATB)
The PC-Mobile re-radiating antenna comes in two parts. First the active antenna that you see on the right that sports a magnetic base so you can fix the square antenna block to the roof of the car, followed by a 3 meter long cable which should give you enough cable to run it inside the door and conceal the cable quite adequately on most cars and the cable terminates in an MCX or BNC connector depending on the one you need, the one we reviewed terminates in an MCX connector which is standard for most antenna sockets.

reradiating.php Re-Radiating Antenna Review (GPS-RRAD-45)
One of the must have GPS Accessories for anyone looking to use a GPS Receiver in-car is a re-radiating antenna. A re-radiating antenna basically re-radiates the GPS signal from outside the car to inside the car. If you have a vehicle which has a coated windscreen to keep the heat or sun out, or a windscreen with a heater element coil in it allowing you to defrost the windscreen quicker in those winter months, then this may reek havoc with the GPS signals trying to come through the windscreen to your GPS receiver.
