    Are any of you guys aware of any smaller (lower profile) alternatives to the shark fin? I just don't care for the way it looks and would like to eliminate it but not at the expense of losing my nav, sattelite radio, and whatever else it does. I've been looking around online but just can't seem to find anything.

    Thanks for any help sent my way!

    Old school ones that are on '14 would be ok but wiring doesn't match

    I'm going to go against the grain and say I don't mind the shark fin. It's my vertical stabilizer that controls horizontal stability upon the vertical axis :)

    The Canada guys have something different for some reason. Not sure if the fin is for America only wi-fi hub or what.

    Has the answer,order a replacement for a canadian car!
    The difference may lay in either radio communication rules,
    But that is just my guess!
    I am not sure if the connector would be the same,
    But am betting it is,maybe MABBRYFL30
    Could look up the relevant part# for the antenna and connecting cable,
    Since he has parts book and TSB access if need be!

    Agreed...dimensional stability and acute vortex parallels are a must;)

    Question is, what kind of nightmare is involved to swap it over? Take out the headliner in a brand new car? No thanks. I don't mind the fin other than maybe it pokes through my cover over time. It would happen quicker if left outside with wind buffeting. Mine stays inside. It does add a little more evil to an already evil car so I like it. Smaller one may reduce reception as well.
