Tom Tom Go 300





Anyone got one of these babys? Worked really well on my old Clio but now I switched to the 182 it strugglesgetting reception big time through Im guessing the windscreen, anyone had a go with the external antenna?
 


You need the external antenna.

I ran mine through to the back window and it worked 90% all the time.
 


when i say external, i obvioulsy mean external from the unit, not on the outside of the car, you can put the ariel in the little square at the bottom of the screen in the 182

He means the external antenna u have in ur pic above!


The new units dont support the old antenna and you have to fork out for another £60-£90 quid for a new one.

Cheers Has,

Is the base of the Go 700 not exactly the same as the Classic.

The external aerial is re-radiating so it should work, or so I thought.

Thanks, Lee.

Heya Lee

only just saw this again



Yes to clarify the Base and Aerial are totaly different.

And anybody else reading this please note the accessories for the

CLASSIC
300/500
AND 700

are all different. (Due to features and or fitments)

there are either 2/3 different accessories for each models. So they cannot be used in all units.

Note there are also differences between newer models ie. 300/500 facias cannot be used in the 700 etc....

Hope it all helps.
