Nice job. Is that antenna a bit redundant? The gps unit is outside already.

The antenna shown in the picture is the optional Garmin GXM 30, the XM Smart Antenna. It's needed in order to use any of the XM radio features.

Nice setup!

That's correct it's for XM. The position is really good and an easy reach. It's probably not as nice looking as some setups but since I already had the ram mount it cost me about $2 in hardware.
