    My Garmin 276c lost it's antenna this past weekend.

    I'm now looking for a remote mounted Garmin antenna - the type that plugs into the back of the GPS and mounts elsewhere (rear fender, windscreen, ect...)

    Let me know if you how one...

    Your antenna probably got caught in the front brake hose. If you haven't tried this trick yet, you can go back and retrieve your antenna. Here's how.
    Turn on your GPS and mark the waypoint (man-overboard). The GPS thinks it is at the exact location where the antenna detached. Next, borrow an antenna from a buddy and do a "go-to" to that last marked point. I have seen this done successfully a couple of times

    Warren.... that's brilliant - too bad I didn't think of that at the time it fell off. Alas, it fell off somewhere on Hwy. 11, which was packed with cottage traffic. It's probably destroyed by now.

    And you're right... it was getting hung up on the front break cable all weekend. So I swung it down... didn't realize that's also where you position it for removal... so, it shook itself off.

    Nevertheless, I've ordered the remote antenna off eBay for $10 (same one pictured for sale at GPScentral).


    cheers lads.
