Stephen, look at this picture from the HRO website:

Looks to me like it's still SMA, just recessed into the plastic a bit. 
Probably because the plastic on the top of the radio is covering the GPS 
antenna. I don't see why you couldn't get a SMA to BNC adapter on there, it 
just might be a little tricky to get the nut fully threaded on.
