GPS/SAT antenna question...
 
I did a search for part number 05064910AA on here, and came up with nothing. So what I want to know is, has anyone upgraded a factory non nav to a factory nav, such as the RHR 730N, and bought anything else other than that antenna above? I have seen a write up on another forum of a guy adding this to his system, and used a mini circuit combiner to get the gps and sat cables to one, but that is more expensive than the antenna itself.
Has anyone used a different antenna that combined the two?

Id like to know because that antenna is 75 bones.

thanks

i think i might have found an outlet, oemautoparts.com, they sell them with a purchase of a unit, so I am asking if they will sell just the antenna.

I upgraded on my 2012 jku from the 130 Sirius radio to the 430n GPS radio. Although I found conflicting reports, I believe at least on the 2012 model, that Sirius and the GPS use the same antenna, as I definitely did not install anything new. I just plugged the cables from the 130 into the 430n, and everything now works perfectly. I believe, however, that you might need an antenna with some older model jeeps.

2011 and newer have the Nav and Sirius antennas combined into 1 unit and have 2 plugs on the back, 1 for Nav/Sirius and 1 for AM/FM. The 2010 and older have a separate Nav antenna and have 3 plugs, 1 for Nav, 1 for Sirius, and 1 for AM/FM.
