Hi,

I've posted this info on the other forums here and figured there would be an interest here as well. Here's a link on the Acadia forum where Ted K found a source for a variety of stubby antennas. The link to their website is in his post here as well as pics of my antenna replacement and my experience with this swap:

:cheers: Merry Christmas and a healthy New Year to you all!

Regards,

Thanks for the cross post Jim; I have been thinking about getting the same antenna for my 07. The house I am living in now leaves little height when parking in the garage although I can park the Acadia in the garage if needed

Hi JJNTJ2003,

Think you would be safe in ordering, say under Acadia, as long as the base which your antenna screws into appears to be the same as the pictures I posted for my 2009 Saturn Outlook.

Got it in the mail today from stubbyantenna.com. :blob: Took 5 days, not bad. LOVE the way it looks. The OEM antenna bugged the crap out of me. This one looks much nicer! (please ignore the dirt on the Traverse, I washed it a couple days ago, but its bad weather over here. I know, bad owner! bad owner!)

exactly which one did you order?

Also, it's been a while since you have had it, how does reception seem to be? AM/FM/XM?

Thanks

I emailed stubbyantenna.com and asked which one to order for my 12 Traverse. Response: We don't sell one for your vehicle. Hmm. They list Acadia and Enclave in their listings, but not Traverse (that outsells both of the other). :eek:hno:

Strange.

Bringing this one back to life


My wife has been having XM issues daily going to an from work. I ordered the 11" Fuba-Series from stubbyantenna.com just now to see if that would fix it. I had to search under GMC and then Acadia as I didn't see Traverse listed under Chevrolet. I'll report back to let you know if it fits, and again if it fixed her issue.

the antenna you ordered is only for regular radio.
My understanding is the XM antenna is in the square/rectangular base--- where you screw in your antenna.

I thought so too, but I need to try something, the XM reception hardly works for my wife on her daily commute and I couldn't find any other suggestions.

read somewhere that XM/Sirius--- was having issues with bad reception for some people because I think it was Verizon- started using some new frequency--- which overlapped...


just read it this week...
