    I noticed that my RNS-E has two Fakra inputs on the back panel.

    Am I right in thinking one is the radio aerial and one is the GPS antenna?

    If so, which one is which?

    GPS antenna is a totally different one. 1 is for the radio and the other looks for the traffic reports

    No problem. Any chance you can answer this question, too? It's a bit quiet on the ICE front today.

    Can't remember of the top of my head but I have actually wrote with marker pen on mine to remind me which way up/which side they go. Am away from home currently so will have to check when next back unless someone else posts in the mean time.

    They will only go in properly one way, you'll here the click as the springs release. It's the most half arsed release system I've ever used on a radio. I struggled for ages with mine, even when they were the right way round.
