I think I misunderstood the question. Is it how many GPS antenna, or the number of devices that use GPS?


I have 3 antenna, but 4 (5?) devices using gps (I think). Two for G3x, one for GNS650, one for ADS-B, and doesn't the transponder use an input too?

Come on now. Unless you have an antiquated flip phone, chances are you have a "GPS on board." I'm only saying that because I've yet to meet someone without a cellphone.

I know several people who don't have cell phones. And MY cell phone is a phone, period. No GPS in it.

Unless you still have a 2g only phone (which if you do be prepared to get a shutoff notice). You have a gps in it. 3G/4G rely on mobile gps for E911 services

Antiquated Garmin 196 (battery powered), iPad mini, iPhone 6, and my Stratus.

Vlad, an extra GPS wouldn't hurt and you can get a 196 on the cheap....just saying.
