    Thought I'd throw out a fun fact from my latest stereo adventure.

    So I pulled the dash to connect my Sirius and RCA cables and I noticed that my GPS antenna had fallen in behind the deck and was sitting at the bottom of the cable wrap (I had not taken the sticky off the metal base pad). I was impressed that my GPS was still working! It had a signal strength of 19 feet from the bottom of the dash. So needless to say, you could almost put it anywhere behind the dash and get reception. With it now pinched above the vent and below the dash (properly on the metal base pad STUCK to the vent), I'm showing between 12-16 feet but I'm sure it will get better as I move around and it locates. It was just done last night...

    For reference, it's a Kenwood DNX 5120 deck. Very impressed with how far technology has come for GPS signal stregth!
