XM Antenna mount for Garmin 2730
I made up a bracket to mount my XM antenna back beside the radio antenna. I cut it out of a piece of sheet metal (0.060") so that I could bolt it on the bottom of the antenna bracket (ie removed the small cover plate). I twisted it slightly so that the antenna surface is parallel to the ground.
As part of this, I removed the Stingray and ran a XM antenna extension cable (it came with my Garmin 2730) from the BMW mount back under the seat, where I connect the XM antenna "hockey puck". This way I can easily remove the antenna to use in other vehicles.
