    I put the GPS antenna under the dashboard on my 09 WRX. Sort of "forward" of the stereo itself. That way everything is hidden, no wires, and I've had no reception issues!

    Thank you! Do you just have it loose or zip tied anywere in particular? How about the reverse wire and speedometer?

    On the 09, if you feel sort of forward-right there is a small ledge juuuust under the dashboard. I foam taped it right there. It's just under the surface of the dash, with a clear view of the sky through the plastic dash and windshield. I'm sure the 2010 is very similar if not identical.

    I didn't tap reverse wire for anything (no back up cam... yet at least!) and no need on my stereo for speedo...

    I'm sure there are posts somewhere about how to get the reverse signal ... I'd imagine you could find it somewhere near the shifter since I'd assume it gets the reverse signal from there somewhere?

    Speedo can be found in the dash gauge cluster wiring harness I believe. Not sure which one though since I didn't need it.
