Mystery box

I have a 2014 3050s. On the driver's side corner of the top of the dashboard is a 1 inch by 1 inch black box with a wire coming out of it. It is attached with velcro to the Dashboard so I assume it is not a Ford thing. Does anyone know what this is?

Blue tooth mic?

Does the box have little holes?

Someone told us it was the antenna for the GPS. I really don't know though. Just throwing that thought out there.

1. It is the GPS antenna
2. The Bluetooth mic would be a small, black, mic looking thing around the back side of the sun visor.
3. XM Antenna is and has always been run to the roof.

Is there a Class A Factory Rep that monitors the Berkshire subforum? I know Randy Houser, is he the man?

I was hoping it was the XM antenna. Guess I will have to run one to the roof. Thanks for the quick responses! Anyone have any advice as to where to route the XM antenna cable?

We ran our XM antenna around the door frame and then up into the top cabinet above the cab (we have cabinets, not a bed, above the cab). We placed it right up near the roof cap in the front and held it in place with Velcro strips. The fiberglass doesn't affect the antenna reception. We weren't keen on drilling holes in the roof, so this was our solution. Works great!
