Yes.. the older radios must have 2 satellite antennas.. 1 for Sirius and another for GPS. I"m wondering if maybe you have the 2 antennas reversed? When I had the single band (sirius) antenna plugged into the single antenna input on my RHR radio, it was telling me I was driving around in Texas when I was in NJ. I was beginning to think that something was wrong with the GPS section of the radio until I put the dual band antenna on the truck.

The stand alone GPS antenna goes under the dash cover.. You might be able to snake it there with just the radio bezel removed, not sure.. I'm also thinking that maybe if you placed the GPS antenna behind the radio, it may be confused with your location because it can't see enough satellites..
