    XM Ant Location

    Hey guys just woundering if anyone has a XM setup in a rex yet, and were did you guys put your antenas? the roof mounts dont look like they would work because of our rear window molding is not the normal overlaping type.

    Any help would be great

    Will

    My friend has an S4, and he put it on the trunk. If you have a spoiler, you could still put it on there. Be creative. Maybe even on the top of the back window, or on the bottom. I don't know, post pics when you get it up!

    I went ahead and put the glass mount antenea, it looks pretty clean; was a pain in the ass to route around the window but it seems to be working ok. If my digital camera wasn't being lame I'd post some pics.

    I have read on this forum and on NASIOC that some people have had luck mounting the "external" antenna inside of the car, for a super-clean installation. I hate to say this, but run a few searches and you might come up with some good information.

    My friend also has an S4, and also mounted his XM antenna on his trunk. I believe the XM ones are magnetic, not sure though. Again, you'll prolly get some good information through a few simple searches here and over at NASIOC.

    Anyone have a link to the one that goes from the car to the house? I've seen it, but only with an adapter for the cassettes player.

    Go to crutchfield.com they have the sony that is hotswapable so you can bring it from your car and house, Sony makes like 4 diffrent Kits, depending on if you want the caset adapter or FM Modulation.

    I dont want to use an antena with on glass, becuase i dont feel like cuting a hole in my brand new tint yet. Any way they seem to fall off in a year anyway.... ran gets caught under the lip, and eats away at the adhesive after time. Ohwell, ill check out NASIOC... thanks guys!!!!

    Top center of the trunk lid right in front of the brake light. Get the Terk low profile antenna. Works great that way...

    how did you route the wire? details would be cool... i have been thinking about that but didnt like the fact of a wire doing a 90 degree bend around the trunk like that.
