2014 GPS antenna location

Just installed OEM nav unit in 2014 DCTRDOR. (Thanks FLTrucks!). It is awesome.
When installing I ended up with two very similar antenna input cables,one that came with the supplied GPS antenna and one in the bundle of wires. Bottom line I think the 14 came with gps antenna installed, maybe in the shark fin? Well I plugged in the one already in the truck and it worked flawlessly.
Complete plug and play, other than the entune VIN thing which was easily fixed (a 2015 VIN will work).
If anyone is interested in 2014 entune non-nav with all mounting including dash plate, PM me!

Does anyone know if it's possible to change the Nav view from top down, to 3D? My FX4 with MFT had the 3D option, same with wife's '13 Outback Limited.

Wait and see if your shark fin really does give you good reception, IMO is sucks! I have a 2014 with Entune Plus and my XM drop all of the time. I also have an aftermarket XM in my Camry, the reception is 10X better on the same stretch of road.

Yeah the XM antenna is lacking. Goes out often when driving between trees even. Going to be hard pressed to sign up when the trial period is over. For GPS in the nav, it's been pretty spot on. Sometimes when I look at it though there is a red line through gps. Not sure what that means, maybe the nav unit knows speed and heading and figures it out when there isn't a signal? Still very pleased with the nav unit!
