Shark fin antenna

Does anyone know where I can get a shark fin antenna as mine is causing sat nav location to be off? Looked on eBay but wonder if anyone knows anywhere?

Just get it on ebay. Any GPS antenna with blue fakra connector will do.

As above. I did this on my S4. A magnetic hockey puck type of antenna which I located above the glove box stuck to a piece of the dash structure. Replacing the roof antenna is a major ball ache and expense. I think the hockey puck cost me about £6 and worked perfectly and was still working when I sold the car 6 years later.

There is space under the center speaker trim to put the antenna.

Is this easy to fit ? I’ve been quoted £95 for new shark antenna and £50 to fit by local garage.

On the S4. yes. Pop out the RNSD unit to access the connector at the back and 5 or 6 bolts to release the glove box enough to hide the antenna above it. But £95 and £50 to fit sounds like a bargain at your local garage. Just the part for the S4 was in the hundreds. ��
