I had to remove the antenna for a recent trip with a kayak. Everything seemed to work fine without the antenna on there (satellite radio, radio, navigation, etc). So that's awesome. What I don't like is having the contact points exposed. So I'm looking to find a stubby (2-3 inch) replacement. I've found one for GM vehicles, but they have a different type of attachment.
Let me know if you have seen this or have any ideas. This would probably solve roof-rack problems too.
