Jetta 6 Dummy Shark Fin Upgraded

November 2013

Visit my main listing here

Neo wanted a navigation system head unit for his 2012 Jetta Mark 6.  He made the careful decision to install the RNS510 instead of the cheaper Chinese or Taiwanese HU.  Everything worked well and he is a happy customer !

On top of that, he wanted the original look and performance for the RNS510 and opted for the Shark Fin antenna to be installed.

We removed the dummy antenna from his vehicle and installed the original VW Shark Fin antenna ! It is a complete picture.....95% Satellite reception !

The original Dummy Shark Fin which is for cosmetic purpose to cover the factory produced hole.

The bottom of the dummy which has a double seal ( O-ring plus lip seal ) to prevent leakage.

The factory pre-installed hole on all the Jetta Mark 6.  The same hole is also found on the Scirocco, Tiguan, Beetle and Polo 6R .  Only factory installed Navigation Radio would have the GPS antenna installed otherwise, the cosmetic dummy would be installed.  

The very handsome looking and function GPS antenna retrofitted on Neo's Jetta Mark 6
