    Installed an XM Oynx satellite radio in the Tacoma yesterday. I have noticed that when I am driving I get some wind noise from the external magnetic mount antenna at speeds above 65 mph. It doesn't do it all the time, maybe when I am driving in a cross wind:confused: Has anyone else experienced this after installing an external XM radio antenna like this? If so how did you fix the problem? I have the antenna mounted in the center of the cab right at the edge of the windshield.

    Thanks for any help:D

    Well I fixed the problem. I got some silicone and put a small amount all the way around the antenna and smoothed it out with my finger. I let it dry and took it for a test drive today, and no more noise.:D
