OK, Myself and Kev have just spent the last few hours fitting a carin sat-nav system to my 1996 omega elite which I removed a few weeks ago from a 1998 elite in a scrappie. The only problem was that the disc inside the sat-nav unit only cover's the south and central England the date on the disc is NT-gb 97.1.

I'II post photos of the full retro fit in the morning when I've tided up the last few bit's. 8-)

How do you mean?

There was an antenna supplied, which sits on the back parcel shelf, or on the dash.

Looked exactly like the GPS antenna on my Origin B2.  ::)

I was under the impression it was built into the radio/ phone antenna on the roof, didnt realise there was a seperate antenna

The GPS antenna is similar to the one pictured below, when I removed it from the scrap omega the antenna was located on the passenger side of the dash just next to the barcode but when I fitted it my omega elite I located it on the back parcel shelf , In a few days I'II post picture's of the whole instalasion;

The antenna is on the roof on facelift models with the Siemens/Navteq system, but on pre-facelift models with the Philips Carin system, like the one i've fitted to Jims, the antenna is seperate.  ;)
