Can I solder on a uFL connector to the GPS Shield?

Hi

The connection between the GPS Board and a uFL to SMA cable (which connects to an antenna) seems a bit insecure to me. Could I solder this on or would this cause issues?

Thanks

Would not recommend it. That's two contacts, if I'm looking at it correctly. If you set up the proper strain relief and press down firmly, it should be fine.
