You can put it on the roof(front or back) and run the wire along the window trim. You can also put it on the trunk lid or some guys put them on their rear decks inside the car. You may get some reception loss from time to time with it inside the car though. someone that has theirs inside would probably be able to tell you more about that way.

I got the mag-mount and put it on the corner of the trunklid near the front right of the trunk (i.e. trunklid right behind the right rear door). When I'm using XM, I throw it on there. When the XM (I have the SkyFi) isn't in the car or I am at a car show or racing, I simply move the antenna to the underside of the trunklid.

BTW, I can verify the mag-mount is good into triple digits on the speedo :D

I have no reception loss what so ever.
Only in tunnels, but that is normal.

I have one inside and one out. The inside one is an around town car, and is fine. In the boonies in northern New Hampshire, eh, not so good. Around town is fine because of the repeaters. For the most part inside, on the back deck, as far back as possible, will work. If you go out in the boonies, be aware the glass is an attenuator.

I'll also note I would have first tried it on the rear deck, but I have metallic window tint all around (and Sungate windshield). Pretty much kills ANY chance of any radio type signal working well inside the car

Not sure if it was because of normal trunk usage (use mine about every 3rd day, not slamming it shut either), but I went through 6 or 7 trunk mounts before finally going with one at the top rear of the roof. Goes right into the trim, had zero trouble since then.
