Were to solder wireless antenna connector?

Hello,

I have an automotive DVR installed on my car.

As you can see on the picture, it has a space for a wireless antenna adapter.

Unfortunately i have no electronic skills and need some help to figure-out where should I solder this connector into the communication board of my device (See pictures of the board).

If you can identify the make & model 1st try to contact them to see if they have an upgrade kit. If not see if you can find out what WiFi PC Card they used on the higher end sister model that will be the unit you will need to get. You won't be able to use anything else as the firmware in the unit will expect this explicit WiFi unit.

Most likely you will also need a firmware update to make it work as well.
