Default GPS Antenna cable length

What GPS are you referring to? Garmin has both a coax type GPS antenna (182) and a self-contained GPS antenna that sends serial format signals (2006/2010). For these particular units, cable length is not critical and you can cut the cables as required. However, it is never a bad idea to coil up and ty-wrap 3 or 4 feet of excess cable.
