All,

I am ordering a GT4 and want to be sure I avoid getting the ugly roof wart (IMHO).

Does anyone know if the wart is tied to the Sirius XM or the Navigation System?

Reason I ask is if you order CDR+ it comes with the High Res Screen (which I want) and Sirius XM / HD Radio.

If I skip that and order the PCM option (it comes with the High Res Screen which I want and the Navi which I do not really want) but does not come with the Sirius XM / HD Radio.

Just looking to be 100% sure I order the correct option.

thanks in advance,
- B

Given that your cellphone has a GPS receiver and no wart and Satphones have warts, I would assume the wart is tied to the Sirius and not the GPS ;)

I'm pretty sure that the GPS antenna is located near the base of the windscreen.

The Sirius radio uses the roof wart.

The only way to positively avoid the roof wart is to get the base radio only. I know the wart is definetely used for sirius. Don't know if it's used for navigation.

If you don't want the wart, then don't order Sirus/XM. The PCM doesn't include the wart.
