Garmin road tech 665 anntenna placement?

I know others on here have the same unit or the std garmin 665 with the XM antenna, so my guestion to you is : Where did you end up putting your antenna? I have the Madstad shield so that may play a part,but I have tried 3 different locations under the fairing and none have given me what I would consider consistent reception. From other blogs and forums it is beginning to sound like it may have to be mounted on the tour pack. suggestions please?

I mounted mine in the left fairing glovebox. Works great

Harley makes a mount specifically for this antenna for the Road Glide. It is P/N 76000016. It mounts it up against the side of the radio. I have one, with the metal windshield trim, and have no issues with reception as long as there are no mountains blocking me.

Magnetic Mount

Since I remove my Garmin quite frequently, I wanted something that was easy to take off, and found this from Harley. You can mount this on any metal surface. I mount it on my gas tank, and it has never failed me.
