Is there an external antenna to the Garmin unit? Wondering how you can get GPS signal from within the glovebox/ashtray if the antenna is attached to the back of the unit.

I use an external antenna… External antennas pull 3 times the satellite signal and the acquisition time is around 1-2 minutes.

I have a busy week lined up, but I will do my best to post more pics if there is an interest.

This pic is not my X5, however the arrow is pointing to the where my external antenna is located. It is in the air intake vent within the hood, drivers side…
