    XM Radio

    I have the XM weather radio which uses the same antenna. I have it on
    the glareshield and it works fine. I simply removed the magnet from
    the base and put velcro there to keep it in place.

    XM Radio

    Antenna reception through the windshield is no problem. Just keep
    it, the wire, and anything else (especially magnetic) away from the
    compass.
