Anyone know where the antenna is located for XM? Is the antenna on the top/rear a multi-function antenna for everything?

Also, I wonder why Honda didn't go with a 'Shark' style antenna which looks much better and you don't have to worry about it breaking while washing.

Can't say about the styling, but if I recall, the manual states to remove (unscrew) the antenna before using an automated car wash.

We've been going to car washers for 8 years with the CRV without taking the antenna off and its fine(since 2008). Here its all touchless car wash thou. We dont even have those fabric spin brush in car wash anymore. Seriously,who goes out to take the antenna off anyways before washing the car. Its just a way for the manufacturer to cover their butts IMO. There is no need to take it off if you go to a touhless car wash. I cant say for sure with the old spin brush car wash thou. They aren't even good for you car paint anyways.

I use touch less as well. Brushes get full of dirt etc and leave scratches everywhere
