Cable out for GPS Ref. : 0876A07

We all knows, the GPS has to be mounted on a stand like a mushroom.
Why is the cable output of the Mushroom GPS to the side and not downwards?

OK, the far east products are simply clones, but with european development knowlege.

Therefore, I made a 3D Printed Bottom Housing with cable out downwards.
For me its solved, but for all others?
