Default RER nav antenna and uconnect mic question

I just bought an RER off ebay and before i start the install i just had a few questions. Does anyone know exactly where the factory NAV antenna goes on a 2010 Ram? Pics would be great but just a description is very helpful. Next question is for anyone who had installed the stand alone uconnect mic. Where did you put it? what is the best place? Thank you.

My 2009 RER has a Puck type antenna on the rear passenger side of the roof
if there is any hole on your roof now, just use that spot

you can just see the puck antenna in this pix



this is a much better pix, it has my cb antenna & the puck type antenna in it



i have been told that there is another antenna, possibly for the Uconnect/Bluetooth that is tucked between the top of the radio & the dashboard

The third antenna for am/fm of course is the right fender mounted one

My microphone is the rear view mirror type & if you ask me it sucks, stupid place for Dodge to place it
They even put a note in the Owners Manual that reads something like :

when using the hands free device for uconnect/bluetooth, turn your climate control fan to low or off & close your windows

between the road noises & cross wind noises, the angry woman's voice in the radio almost always interprets your words incorrectly

If i were installing a stand alone microphone, i would either place it between the over head console & the headliner, above your right ear & 6 to 12 inches forward of your right eye
or
run the wire up the drivers side A pillar to a point that is between your mouth & eye height, then have the mic head sticking out between the A pillar cover & the windshield glass. The A pillar cover comes off fairly easily, so the wiring will be hidden

good luck with your install
=====================================

i don't know if you have used the uconnect/bluetooth before in any other vehicle, i never read the Uconnect booklet that came with with my Ram

I did find out that i can push the phone hard key
the voice says that i am connected
I can then say something like;
Call Richard, ( a name from my cell phone address book )
the voice will say;
Call Richard Home, is this correct ?
I reply Yes
the voice replys Calling Richard

When in Navigation Mode, set your HOME Address,
if you do not wish to enter a Street address & just use a town, the navigation will default to your towns City Hall

If you are going to drive to another area & use the Navigation function, if you are driving to Erie Pennsylvania & don't give a street address, the Nav will guide you to the Erie Pa. City Hall

Everything GTyankee said is spot on.

When I installed my RER I put the nav antenna right above the radio. When you take the radio out feel towards the dash and there is a somewhat flat metal bar, I ran some wire ties to keep the antenna in place and to keep it from rattling. My stand alone mic is on the overhead console on the front drivers side corner.

Thanks for all the info. I think the antenna on the roof is for sirius though. on the newer trucks its both sirius and nav. I just want to make it like it is from the factory. thanks again for all info.
