No issues with reception? I live in MN and spend a lot of time in northern MN. Thanks!I dislike the factory antenna. I replaced mine with this one --> https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01MRER777/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
The reason for my dislike of the factory antenna, is although as @Billjc states as using it as a sort of "height gauge", I end up snapping these OEM antennas clean off when off-road fishing in NW Ontario when I am trucking through tight spaces with tree branches almost rubbing the roof of the truck as I drive down the off-road trails to the remote lakes.
