Helix 5 Di
« on: December 28, 2015, 09:28:06 AM »

I am new to this forum.  I just purchased the Helix 5 Di without GPS.  Now I am thinking that I might want GPS functionality on this machine.  My question is would it be possible to add a GPS antenna to this machine via the commination's port. If it is possible I think the cable I need is

I'm afraid not ... The Comm port on the smaller internal antenna units are only used for HB technician connection during service ...

Thanks rnvinc  for the reply.  I bought it at the Factory Outlet.  They are willing to exchange it for the Di / GPS Combo.  Looks like an additional $110.
