That's an interesting perspective, which I can understand and respect. I do pay attention to the forum area and don't post when rig-specific questions are asked.
Let me point out that you have a 2012 Solera and yet you posted advice for the owner of a 2013 Solera. It might well be that, as a cost-cutting measure, they removed the roof-top antenna for the radio and have the common little piece of wire back there now so that your advice was as misdirected as mine. Either way, I think that checking the back of the unit to see what (if anything) is plugged in back there is good advice in any case.
