Default SAt Nav cable connector repair

My highline navigation is not picking up a signal from the shark fin. I have replaced the sharkfin but still no signal. Looking at the connector that comes down from the sharks fin and into the sat nav drive in the boot I notice the co-axial cable, while still attached, has come loose from the connector which goes into the sat nav drive unit and I think its this that is causing the problem. I think the connector is an SMB connector? The connector are readily available, but the crimping tool for the SMB connector is over 100. A bit expensive for 1 crimp! Can anyone confirm that it is a SMB connector (not an SMA) to the Sat Nav unit and has anyone had experience of repair /replacing this connector? Thanks.
