Help, or not for fitting...
got the new areal today. can anyone tell me how they fitted it please.
Which one have you got? Dashboard or roof?
If it's dash mount, first you have to disconnet to roof aerial. The GPS antenna is plugged into the back of the CD/DVD unit in the glove box. From memory you can remove the lining fairly easily to get to it (I'm sure someone here will have better instructions than that). You then need to find a place to mount your new antenna, best place is middle of the dash near the windscreen, it must be able to 'See' the sky for best poerformance. Run the cable discreetly to the back of the unit, plug in and go.
This all assumes that it has the necessary cable and connector fitted.
Not sure how much help that is, but it is a couple of years since I fitted mine.
