    Just wondering for those of you that have in-dash GPS units (or XMS), how have you ran your remote GPS antenna wires and where did you place the antenna?

    I had seen where someone ran their XMS antenna out through their center brake light and mounted it on the roof above the brake light - but I'm looking for other options.

    Please post pics if available.

    I received this Eclipse AVN2210p MK II CD receiver with detachable TomTom portable navigator as a present and will be installing it when I get home on Tues:

    Just looking for suggestions, Thanks.

    I know a few people have left there sat radio receivers just in the cab itself with good results. Other option would be to mount it on the hood but I think that looks dorky myself.

    Checked your gallery, you wouldn't happen to have a picture of it installed do you?

    Thanks for the suggestion ;)
