1st, you will need an antenna adapter for after market radios. Also, the antenna booster needs a 12v power source or you reception will be very poor. Use the remote/accessory power line in the A5 port.....

Well, I for one appreciate Bug Splat posted 7 months after the OP! It's now almost exactly a year after he did, and I needed his info today!

IMO, people on this site are way too concerned about extraneous posts! There's a good chance that they aren't extraneous at all... Let the information flow! :-)
