Not sure what you are asking. That product has nothing to do with the Pi Zero W.
The following two different antenna options are available in the ODIN-W2 series:
This chapter gives an overview of the different external antennas that can be fitted to the module. This radio transmitter IC: 5325A-0965 has been approved by Industry Canada to operate with the antenna types listed below with the maximum permissible gain and required antenna impedance for each antenna type indicated. Antenna types not included in this list, having a gain greater than the maximum gain indicated for that type, are strictly prohibited for use with this device.
- ODIN-W260 equipped with dual U.FL. coaxial connectors for external antennas. Different types of external antennas are available and can be used.
- ODIN-W262 equipped with an integrated dual-band antenna
That's assuming there's a great demand for such "improvements" that justifies the additional expense and certifications.
I'll second that and add that the ones tha really get my goat are those who go straight into demand/complain mode without trying to fina a work around for themselves. Pin headers for USB 2 to name one (and how long before someone asks for those for USB 3, if they haven't already?).HawaiianPi wrote: ↑Sat Jul 06, 2019 3:20 amSorry, but people who ask the Raspberry Pi group to redesign their products to suit the individual's needs kind of make me crazy. At least you were nice about it. The ones that demand it and call the engineers stupid for not doing it make my eyes roll so hard it hurts.
but remamber this mod will invalidate the EMC certifications (FCC, EU and others).
People demanding something, calling RPT/RPF and their engineers stupid for not having it, claiming the Pi won't ever be a success without it, are one thing, but people merely saying they believe it would be nice to have this or that are something else.HawaiianPi wrote: ↑Sat Jul 06, 2019 3:20 amSorry, but people who ask the Raspberry Pi group to redesign their products to suit the individual's needs kind of make me crazy.

Sadly it isn't that simple.
Not needed. There are already HATs that use a USB connection to the Pi. They just use a cable to one of the existing USB sockets. Having headers pins is clearly not a rerquirement for USB connected HATS.How much cheaper then the actual connector, only RPi would work that out and with the maker community to make hats/add-ons to go with it you gain an extended ecosystem. Great for projects
Not sure that's the reason. It's far more likely to be because some cases have front panel USB ports] and USB connected drive bay devices so the mianboard manufacturer can sell boards to a wider range of PC assemblers than they otherwise could.You see headers all them all the time on PCs, it saves them putting them in the board and they can charge you more than a Pi for a back plate to use them
