Can I shorten the GPS Antenna cable?

AA-00220

The GPS Antenna coax cable must not be cut short. This is due to the fact that the GPS receiver inside the EFIS is tuned for the length of coax cable included. This applies to the GPS antenna included with the XTreme, Enigma, Odyssey, Voyager and iEFIS systems.

Also, the excess cable should be bundled up in a 'flat pack' with nice loops on either end, as pictured below. It should not be bundled in a circle as this creates a 'loop antenna' which will cause reception problems.
