    Yes, the internal will work just fine. Make sure that you have clearance behind where you are planning on mounting it!!
    I can't talk about it right now, it's being handled by the Postal Inspector. Those guys don't mess around!

    Mine works great. Garmin 162 w/ built in antenna.

    But mine is mounted to the dash, not into it.
