    maybe a stupid question, but i was thinking of installing an in-dash navigation/headunit in my truck. if i do, do i need to mount some sort of antenna on the outside of the truck for the navigation to work?

    the newer model units have very good antennas and you can mount them under the dash. I just got the Sony XNV-770BT. The nav antenna has a magnet on the bottom, and I simply stuck it on top of the HU, and it works fine, regardless of the orientation. You most likely will not have to place it on the dash, like the instructions show.
