fastbee Posted December 20, 2015 Report Share Posted December 20, 2015 I'm going to replace my old radio (Pioneer double din) with a newer model that has some better features. One thing I'm thinking of doing is going to XM radio. My truck already has XM antenna and factory tuner. My antenna is the dual lead type and I can seem to find any way to turn that into a single lead that the newer sat radio tuners use. I've saw where folks have just used one of the leads, but that means picking between satellite and terrestrial signals and possible signal loss. I've also read where people have replaced the antenna with the newer style stock ones. My truck has had some paint work done on the roof from the PO to correct hail damage. If I remove the current antenna the newer one will have to be the same or larger to cover any imperfections. I suppose I could use the antenna that comes with the tuner but am not sure about where to put it. If I installed it on the dash right against the glass would it work as well as outside the vehicle? Has anyone mounted it near the third brake light and ran the wire in the cab there? This project might be more effort than it's worth, just looking for some ideas.
