I was wondering if anyone knew if the stock GPS antenna, 2001 S500, is powered like many of the current aftermarket head unit antennas are. Also, has anyone had any success in installing an aftermarket GPS antenna into the stock COMAND unit? That'd be another way to tell if they are compatible.

That way, all one would need is a FARKA to SMB adapter and then one can use the stock GPS antenna.

The factory GPS antenna on an 01 S500 is powered. It will have an SMB connector to the head unit. You can use it on another HU if it has the same connection.
