I've just brought one of these and it works a dream :pbjt:

I've got a sweet 3G connection and crucially this device has also given me GPS which I have been trying to achieve for a long time with a Gobi2000 card but hit a brick wall so many times.

Only problem is now the GPS does take a while to get a fix and even when it does it is a very weak one outside and a fix inside is impossible. My question is, is there anyway to improve the signal?

I've heard that a separate Wi-Fi antenna can be installed purely for GPS receiving?

Please help guys

Why not just install a original GPS unit for a CF19?

I suppose you're looking for something like these:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/15-15mm-GPS-ant ... 4d0c4fd59d
http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-GPS-Antenna ... 35da4b137b

Not sure about the quality of these particular items, just did a quick search.

That looks just the job!!!!! Is it the Aux or the Main that I would be connecting the aerial to?

I don't know anything about your particular card but technically it should be 3G on Main and GPS on Aux.
