TV antenna


Recommended Posts

Can anyone give me some suggestions on which sort of TV antennas is better for the after market head unit? Can I hide it at the top of the vent and under the dash next to GPS antenna? Or I have to stick it to the wind screen/roof?

TV antenna's on a car is not always the easiest thing to integrate. When it comes to TV reception, a Yagi antenna is on of the best designs. Problem is, it is directional and on a car, is pretty much impossible. Therefore you are left with a variety of dual or quad mast antenna's. For best reception, you are best mounting on the exterior of the car. You can get ones that are like mobile phone car kit antenna's that stick on both sides of the glass as well. That will save you from running cables to the outside of the car. Otherwise you could go for a boomerang design like the limos have, LOL. But even still; reception is pretty subjective to your location.

If you absolutely must have TV, antenna's like this would provide you with decent reception if you are willing to sacrifice the clean looks on the outside of your car:

I just installed this:


Reception is ok. The problem is my head unit is it can only switched to PAL I, M & N from menu and Australia is using PAL B/G. So I only have black and white picture with no sound.

The one problem of this unit is poor documentation. I tried every button in menu, including muling the sound and all of a sudden, the system switched to PAL B/G. I have no idea what had happened but at least I can watch TV now :)
