    so where and how did you mount it ? I just ordered an Ext Ant for my One XL. I'm not having any problems ,just wanted to try to improve signal strength... I saw a window mount for the ext. ant but wasn't to impressed by the looks of it....

    Placed external antenna on flat on dash against windshield. Took approximately 1-2 seconds to lock on 7-8 satellites. Used the antenna when
    my XLS was mounted to the floor console.
