    Do you have the Shark's Fin aerial?

    I would assume your GPS antenna would be connected to the drive in the boot as this is driving the sat nav system.

    Not all Shark's Fins have the GPS antenna in them. I changed mine as it only had the BT antenna in it, but you can get the smaller ones which you can fit behind the dashboard.
