Calearo Roof Mount GPS Test

 
For over 6 months now we have been selling the Calearo range of DAB+, AM/FM and GPS Antennas and we have had some really positive results and feedback from our customers. However, we regularly get asked what are the benefits of a roof mounted antenna over a window mounted (DAB+) or dash mounted (GPS) antenna. So we decided to do a quick test to see the different results. We added a Shark Fin Calearo DAB+, AM/FM and GPS Antenna to our Amarok and did a quick comparison of GPS signal strength. Check out the pictures of the result below, even we were surprised at how big the difference was.

Standard GPS Antenna – 5 Satellites Calearo Roof Mount Antenna – 11 Satellites

Our previous comparisons of on glass DAB+ Antennas as opposed to Roof Mounted options proved conclusively that the reception quality and range is far superior when using a high quality roof mount antenna. Now with this GPS test it is clear that the reception quality of a roof mount antenna is far superior. So if you want the best possible GPS reception around town or if you are heading bush where accurate GPS reception is essential, a roof mount GPS antenna solution is worth the investment.
