Default What am I missing? (GPS speedo parts)

What do I need to make this work. I don't see where the antenna plugs into the speedo. Is there a reciever or something I am missing?

Trick Marine sells the GPS speedo as a kit. You need a new antenna that is compatible with your speedo unit. The good thing is that the new antenna will be alot smaller and look nicer.

I was thinking I needed a new antenna. Trick, how much for a new one and do i need any thing else? Also, is there a market for these old ones? Should I put it on ebay or just throw the old antenna away? Thanks

Do you have a GPS with a data port? If you do, you can probably wire the speedo to it. My speedo is wired to the data output plug on my handheld.

Yes, I have a Garmin E-trex handheld. Not sure of the ports, I don't have it with me right now.
