    What is not to like? The price was $13, it was necessary to adapt the factory power antenna lead to the new Kenwood head unit, it was in stock, and fit without modification. Specifically, the short 7" length, and 90 degree angle plug take little room in a cramped space like I have in my 1992 Corvette. The factory Bose system was too expensive to repair, and I was concerned about retrofitting this complex system which was divided into multiple components. Best Buy knew what was needed and how to connect them. This cable was the last piece required, fits great, restores strong signal for HD radio, and appears it will outlast the vehicle.

    I was a little apprehensive about this item working any better than my original antenna cableon my aftermarket head unit in my malibu, but after using each one, the adaptor actually made the radio come in much better. More stations were found and sound clarity was better than when i had my stock receiver!

    Nice to know that my local Best Buy had the specific antenna adapter I needed to install an aftermarket radio. The GM antenna has a much smaller plug that will not directly mate with a standard radio antenna port. This adapter is a "must have" for this procedure.

    Recent change from stock radio to aftermarket on my 06 GMC Envoy, I wouldn't have been able to finish the job without it. This adapter just plugged into existing antenna cable and plugged right into new radio. Took seconds to finish.

    Happy Best Buy has all my stereo needs! I needed an antenna adapter after I purchased my awesome sounding stereo from best buy. Never surprises that they have parts to fit my older car. Thanks Best Buy!

    This was used when switching out from factory to aftermarket stereo and worked well. I can now connect my phone and iPod with Bluetooth. I am legal again now by being hands free

    This isn’t exactly an uncommon modification. Every car needs one if you upgrade to aftermarket would be nice if they were more compact.

    Although I, myself, don't listen to terrestrial radio anymore... this is a must to eliminate the whine from the signal if it's not connected properly.

    This handy little extension adaptor will allow you to connect the factory installed antenna lead to your new replacement unit. Gives you more room to work with and no problems with reception.

    If you are installing a new unit into an older model chances are, you will not be able to plug the antenna into the head unit. Just get it, return it if you don't need it

    This antenna adapter works just fine as expected. But has the extra bonus of adding a little length to the antenna wire so removing and replacing the head unit is a bit easier.

    When I went to install aftermarket radio did not realize that adapter had changed, once I got the right one was easy to get stereo up and running

    Im not sure why GM uses a smaller antenna than others auto makers; But either way your going to need this adapter. Easy to use and works great. The price point it spot on.

    Used this antenna when installing new radio in my daughter's car. It fit great and worked perfectly. Would definitely get again if needed.

    Works great for my install in '96 Buick Regal. Make sure you get this or you'll have to make another trip to Best Buy when your installing your deck.

    Almost forgot this adapter. It works ok but don’t get to many local radio stations with it. You have to have it though.
