I was wondering how to install it in a C5.
Thanks for the great Ideas , they say that they have wire cell phone antenna but I don't know how well it works.Lenny Angello said:Future -
Sorry. I forgot to address your question about antenna placement. Although, normally it's present location would not be my first choice, I had no choice - I have a convertible. I placed mine right on the dash. It is on the passenger side in the corner with the windshield. It is only noticeable from the outside if you really look for it. In fact, the little "XM' logo invokes a lot of questions like, "What is this?" or "GPS?" or "Hey, what does this do?"
I will agree that it is not 'ideal', I had little/no choice. It certainly doesn't bother me and has not prevented me from winning two first places since it's installation. But wait, there's more . . . it doesn't slow my car down, either!!!

Well you wern't lying to him,it's just that it's waaaaay up on the dial, and it's not on his dial.Lenny Angello said:Future -
Cell phone antenna? I can't imagine they are at the same frequency? Perhaps the person you spoke to told you about a satellite antenna that 'looks' like a cellphone antenna? TERK does make a glass-mount 'whip', standup antenna in addition to the 'turtle' like I installed. My problem was I only have the front windshield - and, frankly, THAT would look 'ca ca'. A coupe or FRC may look fine with the standup on the rear glass.
Interestingly, tonight, while on my way to a club function, a car pulled along side at a long traffic light. XM was playing and the 'jockey' was going on and on about a special 'All Blues' series they were going to run. The promo listed many performers and was playing sound bites. Well, the driver next to me was obviously tuning his radio. Finally he asked me what station I was listening to? I told him it was "higher up on the dial". The light changed . . . he may still be changing stations!
