    Default Look where I put the SatNav ariel...

    I couldn't be bothered trying to install it properly but it works absolutely perfect here in the left cubby hole in the boot. It's been there for about 4 months and has never lost signal or delayed once apart from the obvious (going through tunnels).

    Vehicle : Insignia Tourer

    Trim : Elite

    Engine : 2.0 CDTI (160ps)

    Year : 2010

    Default

    I fitted mine on top of the centre speaker on the dash, there's a gap through the air vent piping to run the cable directly to the back of the head unit.



    Works perfectly, no drop outs, it's directly under the windscreen so clear view of the sky and I didn't have to run a cable to the boot to do it

    Yeah I tried that but I bought a duff arial and couldn't be bothered buying another so I just routed the OEM under the sill trim into the boot.
