****'s too expensive for me.

Might end up getting it again soon, but I'm waiting to until I get myself a double-din HD/Satellite ready headunit.

I've seen it under the dash pad. Still gets great reception too. It's not just one of those 60's antenna's!

Or you could route it to the underside of the hatch plastic. I've seen it there as well. I personally hate anything "in view" that's aftermarket.


Why do all you guys have multiple accounts?

Why not just get 1 portable unit and take it with you?
