External GPS Antenna If the piece of wire works, rather than repairing/replacing the internal antenna/GPS receiver assembly, you can purchase an external antenna for your GPS. The external antenna is magnetic and can either stick to your roof or any metal surface within your vehicle. All GPS receivers require an active antenna or an LNA so close its basically the same thing. The signal is well below the thermal noise floor (~-130 dBm GPS signal at the earths surface, -113.9 dBm noise floor for 1 MHz bandwidth) a bit of antenna gain on a patch (3dB or so) and a whole lot of CDMA processing gain can make it barely usable.
The GPS antenna should also be placed as far away as possible from any other potential obstructions, such as roof bars or other GPS or Radio antennas. This will reduce the probability of multipath effects. On a motorbike the antenna should be placed as far from the rider as possible to reduce the satellite signal shadowing effect of the rider.
