    Hi all

    I have just fitted an autodab module to my RNS-E however the reception is not great so I'm thinking of changing the original shark fin to a combi one.

    Has anyone replaced, or had any dealings with the original shark fin aerial not sure how it attaches and which type of connectors I will need to replace?

    Also what's it like to get at?

    Many Thanks Adam

    Have look on the aerials page of DABonwheels. They have lots of information on different types of aerials and how effective they are. I've used this company a lot and their information and advice is pretty good.

    Original fin supports 3 features, not every fin has these wired in or available.

    Remote aux heating
    GPS for nav
    Phone antenna

    Its bolted on with a fat nut, the roof has a square cutout to align the shark when fitted as base has a square casting as such, I guess you could remove & fit dab type aftermarket as gps can still work by using the interior type antenna, phone isn't as important just use BT & hardly anyone has remote aux heating anyway.
