Hi Roy,
here comes an additional advise. I am using such small GPS antenna with 
magnetic fixing inside of my car direct behind the windshield. So I don't 
need to feed a cable outside, no danger of scratching the surface of my car 
and the performance is nearly the same as with outside mounting of the 
antenna. It is simple to give this method a try. Don't bother about the 
long cable of the antenna which you would not need inside the car. I have 
cut it to length, but no obvious difference in signal strength which is 
displayed at the GPS unit. It seems that the antenna has a built in 
amplifier with high gain.
