€30!?! That’s insanely expensive, especially if it’s no good!
I’ve just ordered one of these just to test it: https://www.ebay.com/itm/1PC-Ceramic-GPS-Built-in-Antenna-Passive-Antenna-PAD-Cell-Phone-Watch-Antenna/132408954278?hash=item1ed4304da6:g:PO0AAOSw~uhUoQT-
It is small and will be hidden under the seat in the end, so it might not be a good solution, but it’ll be interesting to test.

The GSM-anteanna I use with the V2 is very nice as it tucks really nice between the window and the dashboard. If it works well, I might go for a second GSM-antenna 🙂
