    Easy. Those parts are available at a bunch of different websites.

    $11 with shipping from Digikey.com for a 4mm. The stock 2mm does ok, but the 4mm picks up satellites faster and picks up one or two more. The manufacturer is Taoglas and the part number is GP.1575.25.4.A.02

    I actually bought one from ant-king.Com $10 with shipping but my issue is that it still wont recognize.
    I tried re soldering it like 10 times and I finally give up which is not like me.
    I found external gps/compass units for $40 with shipping on ebay and heard they are much better than stock.
    I'll go that route but in the mean time I'll probably keep messing with it.
