For anyone who has studied or learned about long-range Communications, you can understand just how complicated GPS and Location-Based projects can be. However, we’re quite fortunate in modern times that there are very intelligent people working on tools and Modules like this Active GPS Antenna, which features a nice 6m RG174 Cable, with an SMA Plug on the end and an ultra-convenient Magnetic Base, all of which is designed to make your life as an end user or developer easier than ever before.

Operating on a relatively wide voltage of range of 2.7V to 5V and a frequency of 1575.42Mhz, this antenna is ideal for all kinds of Hobbyist Electronics applications, with the ability to reach into professional and industrial use cases as well. Additionally, the convenient magnetic base means that you can attach the antenna to window frames, on top of machines or any other metal surface without worrying about it falling off from vibrations or light motion. And with a reasonably long cable length of 6m, you never have to worry about how far it can reach, which allows you to attach it to the top of a vehicle, truck or even train for effective, out-of-sight functionality.

Typical Applications for this Active GPS Antenna with SMA Plug:

This GPS Antenna is best used with SMA connector GPS Modules and devices, but can also be used with uFL connectors if you have an SMA to uFL adapter. It is ideal for applications in which you need a stable and consistent GPS connection, while the magnetic antenna can easily be stuck on top of machinery, vehicles, equipment or even on a metal roof if necessary.

And finally, just to add a final touch of extra convenience, this Active GPS Antenna can natively fit the SIM808 GSM/GPRS Module as well as the UBLOX NEO-6 GPS Module, although you may need an adapter for GPS devices and breakout boards with different kinds of antenna connectors.
