Question Black antennas on roof

So I noticed I have two black antennas on the roof at the front. I figure one is for the radio. What's the other one for. Looks?

It could be a CB antenna.

I have three of those, one is for the dash radio, one is for the Surround Sound Stereo System, and the third is for the outside TV/Stereo system.

One is for the radio in dash, the other for your stereo.

That's the way it was on our '02 DSDP.

Well I assumed one was for the GPS signal.

So .... we're pretty sure that the 2 or 3 antennas that look alike are AM/FM for radios (dash/outside/stereo)... right?

Yes, GPS antenna should be mounted with the XM antenna on the front right of the unit
