Mounting the Sat/Nav antennas

Quick question here guys... I am looking to install my F90bt this weekend and I have been looking at the antenna placements. I am thinking about mounting each one to the front roof corners next to the windshield, has anyone done it this way??? Can I get the wire through the windshield seal??? Answers and suggestions are alway welcome advice... Thanks

Thanks... after reading the responses I am starting to lean towards a dash mount in the corner. No problems with the defroster blowing hot air on the antenna??

I have been looking at this HU to upgrade from the stock HU.

How about a full review with some pics once it is installed?
