Re: shark fin guys - can anyone speak to reception after install?

Just installed mine a few days ago. The color match to deep cherry red was perfect and the install was unbelievably easy. The reception seems great, not that I ever listen to am/fm radio anyway.

Re: shark fin guys - can anyone speak to reception after install?

If you like, you could look at a Short Antenna, they come in all sizes and look way better. Oh and they're cheaper than $80, they run for around $20 depending on brand.

Re: shark fin guys - can anyone speak to reception after install?

Installed it a couple of months ago - no degradation in AM FM or Sirius reception. The color (Stone White) is not the same as the Stone White vehicle color - but not enough to return.

Anyone know if the NAV unit use this antenna?

Re: shark fin guys - can anyone speak to reception after install?

My reception is terrible for FM is terrible, Sirius is just fine though. I don't really care due to the fact that I don't really listen to FM radio

Did u ever hook up your shark fin?? If so,how did it go? Works like a champ or died like a tramp?
