Alternate GXM Mounting Location

This weekend I swapped over the farkles from the RT onto the GT.

One of the things i wanted to do was have the GXM Antenna mounted in the same location as on the RT - behind the instrument panel.

Mostly for aesthics - do not want to clamp on the bar or other areas.

Also was thinking of doing what others did by drilling a hole and mounting it under the windshield cover.

So I took off the front end and took a look behind the IP and found this place:



There is no interference with the cover

It is very securely mounted

And most important no effect to reception.

Just another idea.......

+1 to that location. I had it on my recently totaled GT and combined it with the installation of an accessory (Aeroflow) windshield and it took mere minutes to complete and worked great.
