Default Sirius/GPS antenna

For Christmas i bought my wife a JVC KW-NT300 to replace her stock base model single CD/Sirius/AM/FM unit. i forget the model but it is the one without the Uconnect buttons.

anyway the stereo place simply used double sided tape to secure 2 mini-mag mount antennas to the dash up by the windshield, one for Sat radio and one for GPS. This looks like crap to me, and i want to use the factory antenna if possible. They did not carry adapters for anything but the FM antenna, but i am sure someone out there makes the proper antenna for at least the SiriusXM part.

i can live with the GPS antenna, as i can mount it under the center of the dash where the middle speaker would go if she had one.

any ideas on where to get the adapter(s)?

as for your answer ... yes and no .... I used the oem satellite antenna for the the after market satellite i had to remove the factory connector and then after doing so the factory antenna had a metal trim ring around the coax cable so i cut that off and plugged the oem coax cable in to the after marked module seems to work pretty good

we have both of those, the issue is i don't like that crappy little mag mount antenna.

BTW, this afternoon her radio said to check the antenna. she's had it since Tuesday and already that POS antenna they sold with it had gone bad. probably installer's fault, but still don't give me a warm fuzzy feeling. of course, that is also why i paid to have someone else install it, i did not want to get blamed by her when something failed!
