Re: Media Center 430N (RHB) GPS Antenna?

To anwser the OP's question about the RHB/430N, I just bought and installedthe 430N...no external antennae required.

I have the RER/730N in my JK and it has an external antennae that sits right above the unit under the dash.

Re: Media Center 430N (RHB) GPS Antenna?

In looking at my Limited - and the OEM GPS components available from Garmin - I strongly suspect that the GPS antenna is under the small circle (about 1.25" dia) just to the right of the center speaker in the top of the dash. Also, this from the Jeep radio book for the 430N:
"The antenna for the navigation GPS system is mounted in
various locations (depending on the vehicle model)
within the dashboard. Do not place items on the dashboard
around the GPS antenna location. Objects placed
within the line of sight of the antenna will decrease
performance. Do not place items directly on or above the
antenna."

I'm not sure where the antenna is. Milious stated that it was a combination Serious/Gps antenna but there is not a separate GPS antenna connection on the back of the 430N. I upgraded to the 430N from the 430 by just plugging into the existing harness and it worked...not sure where the antennas are stashed.
