  • placing Gps antenna

    how do some of you have your GPS antenna placed? I have the randmcnally one (serial) and it just sits on my dash. I would like it more stealthy looking as possible.
    Mine needs to be updated.

    Mine is inside my rear window brake light casing. The casing is plastic and doesn't interfere with the reception in my experience, but then I have a Garmin GPS35, which is really good. It works inside my metal trunk too..

    But anyway, the brake light install is completely stealth.

        can I see some pictures? From what I read my Rand McNally Gps antenna has to have a "view" of the sky.

          Take a look at the link in his sig, it sits right in the middle front of his dash. And I've got the new wee garmin module that I could only get working on my front dash, so I simply painted it black and taped it in the corner.

          Since when is insanity a bad thing?
