    Its very unlikely that your car will have the wires. If you fit a GPS capable sharkfin you will still need to run the wire to the RNS-E. Far easier just fit a GPS antenna under the dash, above the glovebox will be just fine.

    If you have phone prep from the factory and no RNSe then you will only have 1 wire coming from the shark fin. I dropped the rear headlining on mine just to be sure. As the other guys have said, fit the GPS antenna is on top of the glove box and it'll work just fine.
