    My dealer quoted the same. I found a used antenna and decided to give it a shot
    I hooked it up and my screen recognized it. I haven't wet tested it yet. Installation was easy.

    That's cool you were able to find one. Where did you get it?

    I searched FB marketplace and EBay with limited results. Went and purposed the same questions on the Moomba and Supra Facebook page. Someone there had one. Im not sure that helps you. But I can post and ask if anyone else might have one.

    That's ok, thanks for the offer. I think I am just going to go through the dealer.

    Do the GPS pucks ever go out of adjustment?

    Reason I ask is when using map tracer function last year at a lake I know very well, I was grinding the same lake area I always run.

    I mapped out a small area of stumps on the map and felt I was far enough away but prop ended up getting dinged on a submerged stump.

    My question is, can a gps puck lose calibration and offset my map and marked hazards?

    It's possible that you just missed a submerged stump on your maps the first time. Or fluctuations in water level of a few inches, or ballast/crew/boat weight could make a difference in bumping one and not buming one. Or maybe it was a submerged floater drifting around. Though, I'm m not sure of how accurate the gps positioning of the maps software is either. 2-3 ft or what?

    I think you are right, just missed another stump. After thinking it over I probably can check gps to map accuracy at the dock.

    Boat at dock versus what the map shows.

    I do get a gps "lost signal" message every so often, not sure if that is common.

    You know at some point, you have to realize that you need to stop, or at least slow down. I mean, she says the car sustained damage because it was jumping up and down. I don't care what route you might be taking. You still have to have enough since to slow down when the road gets bad. But, to ad to this phenomenon of people that blindly follow a gps, I recall a news story not long ago of an uber eats driver having to be rescued from a river when he willingly drove off into it because his gps said to turn. I'll have to search for that story. He was fined by authorities too after they rescued him.
