You will also need the Antenna unit that is on the windscreen [behind the mirror].

Not sure there’s an antenna in there. There is one as part of the rear window.

You will need a GPS with a Facra connector (Black I think?) for it if there is satnav on the unit you are using. Many mount the GPS near the centre dash speaker, others run it along the top dash trims and up the passenger A-pillar.

Sat nav on these is about as useful as flyscreens on a submarine. Unless someone finds a hack for updating maps.

On a VE????
Yep, Mine is behind my rear view mirror mounted on the windscreen,
Within the grey strip along the top of the screen.

I have a wagon, and the rear window only has the demister on it,
Where my GPS antenna is mounted on the windscreen behind the mirror.

There are two antennas. The regular roof mount. Some models have the DAB as part of the rear windscreen. A third is the GPS.
