Fiesta 2013- Where Is The Satnav Aerial Located (Gps)

Recommended Posts

I have a 03/2013 titanium X ecoboost fiesta of which I have retrofitted the ford 5" led screen with navigation . This all works perfect apart from the car is stuck in KM instead of Miles but I know that requires software / firmware update.

The simple question is that I can not confirm the factory fitted position of the GPS aerial and so it is still in my glove box But works great !

Has any member found the location of the gps aerial of the 2013 fiesta or newer .

Please can any member help me.

My car has the Sony head unit , DAB , Navigation , Sync , with standard roof AM /FM/ DAB aerial .

Thanks

Up to june 2013 it was bolted just behind the display screen, and after that was box next to interior mirror,

Is it not in a cigarette sized black box on the windscreen next to the rear view mirror ?

I was told it was by the rear view mirror but have not seen any pictures of where it goes. It would be a great help if any one could post a picture of the fitted location so I can finish this project .

Thank you in advance for your help

So behind the display and under the top cover with the air grill on it ?

Is the gps aerial the same part number for the mirror and screen mount locations are are they different ?

I would expect different, they certainly look different, yep behind display, sl7ghtly to the right and bolted down with a torx screw and a small cut out on dash where it sits up against. The original gps aerial came on a metal bracket and short cable to the display

Any part numbers for the gps antenna? I'm thinking of doing this in my 2015 fiesta.
