    Is the remote antennae needed, if so when? I'm talking about the plug in style into the back of my CSX 60.

    Not in my experience. I have a powered (amplified) antenna for an old Garmin III+ and V but I never used it and the receivers are much better now.

    The only place would be if you were mostly shielded by metal where the GPS sits for example an airplane or panel van. The seem to work fine most anywhere in a car as there is enough glass.
