It would probably be cheaper to just buy a TOM TOM or Garmin. They are basically giving them away now.
2011+ vehicle w/ Sirius = you don't need a GPS antenna for some radios. The GPS gets the signal through the Sirius antenna. 2011+ it became a dual signal antenna. You just need a head unit that has GPS and Sirius and only the Sirius( Yellow )input.
You can get an adpater( splitter )that let's you do it on older head units w/ both Sirius( Yellow )and GPS( blue )inputs...
So if you have a 2011+ Patriot that has Sirius but no Nav you can get a 2011+ Nav head unit like the 430N RHB and your factory Sirius antenna handles the GPS part too.
This is a 430N RHB back shot. It is a Nav head unit( obviously hence the N after 430 )but as you can see it only has the AM/FM( white )and Sirius( Yellow )inputs. GPS uses that yellow input as well. As I understand it from what I have read anyway.
