If the Furuno unit you're referring to uses a GPS antenna with a coax (i.e. GP31/32) then the Tram antenna will work but the connector is wrong. The Tram antennas usually come with BNC connector and Furuno uses a TNC. Will need an adapter.
SORRY YOU CANT DIRECTLY CONNECT A S-VID CONNECTOR TO A COMPOSITE BNC VIDEO INPUT , THEY DO MAKE CONVERTERS FOR THIS (GOOGLE IT) BUT IT'S BEEN MY EXPERIENCE THAT COST OF NEW/CORRECT MONITOR IS LOWER/SMALLER THAN THESE DEVICES
If your getting transmissions then the receive is working.If your squelch is not adjusting out then it is possible your antenna, or the connector, is not working right. Hand held scanner antennas are the same across the board as for frequency use. The connector your antenna uses is a standard BNC connector. So your antenna is really universal which mean you don't have to go to Uniden and pay top dollar for their antenna.
Now it is possible the squelch knob is giving you trouble. but I would see if you can borrow an antenna just to try from anyone you know that has a hand held scanner. As long as their scanner works well with that antenna it should on yours too. If it don't then check the connector for the antenna on the scanner and make sure it is not loose. You can open the scanner and just eyeball the connections and make sure no soldier joints are not cold.
If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here.
Yes, as long as it is the right length and impedance, you can use a piece of wire! ... If you can get a smaller "antenna" and it fits, it will work fine. You could try disassembling the "Old" antenna, inside, you will find that a it can then be bent or such, use heat shrink to seal it, when modified.
There is a kit available which contains the antenna, mag mount, coax, and connector. OR if you already have your antenna, mag mount and coax, the connector alone is available. You should be able to get these from your local Motorola dealer.
The internal antenna BNC connection (the little steel bayonet that the secures the antenna or extender cable) is a common failure on these units. The threaded retaining ring on the outside of the antenna BNC comes loose when installing/removing the antenna connection, and eventually the BNC rotates and the solder joint inside fails. This happened on mine recently, if you are handy fixing small mechanical parts and a good solderer it is pretty easy to fix. Remove the batteries, remove all six outer case screws (but not the one with the oval metal plate) and gently pull the housing apart. Check the solder connection of the coax wire to the BNC pin & shield. If it's broken and the BNC is loose in the GPS case, tighten the outer BNC retaining ring VERY tight, add a drop of thin super glue (Hot Stuff or Permabond CyA, etc) to keep the ring/BNC/case mated, then repair the coax solder connection. Replace all the screws and test it outside. If it's an aviation GPS you would of course have this done by an FAA licensed avionics specialist. Wink wink.
