Is that not the same as mine? Or at least the aerial part is.
Hi Paul - no yours was possibly the RT6 if memory serves. This is the Navidrive 3D and Ben's car has had an impact on the side as we are beginning to piece this together - so it's quite possible there has been some aerial loom damage - let's see. At least the cables are available in sections.

On my car the radio aerials are printed onto the rear side windows. The roof aerial is for the satnav and possibly phone but, as I haven't put a SIM card in, I don't know.
The aerial base part number for Ben's is 6561RC - there are several versions (of course there would be wouldn't there
). but the NG4 is uber reliable Paul - heard very few issues with these at all in comparison with the RT6 and the EEPROM chip errors these suffer from.
