I'm in the situation right now, looking for alternatives...
BTW, does the GPS antenna really have a SIRF III chip set?

Does anybody already have a solution where to place the antenna in case of comfort glazing?
Run the cable through the filewall into the ABS compartment. Mount the GPS on top of your cabin filter right before the black plastic grill on your hood. I have my SiriusXM antenna here with zero issues.
