Shorter radio antenna to Prius+ ?

Recommended Posts

Is there any shorter radio antenna (aftermarket/part) available thet works on Prius+ ?

The antenna hits the garage door when I drive the pRius+ in to the garage.

Ive thought of swaping antennas betwen our Auris TS HSD and the Prius+ since Auris is lower , but I would rather find an even shorter than the one at Auris

Not really familiar with the Prius+ but would a 'shark fin' style aerial, as fitted to the Gen 4 Prius I believe, be suitable? Would like one for my Gen 3 if they're available.

I asked my local Toyota dealer about this today but they didn't recomend to replace the antenna , although there is some aftermarket antennas incl shark fin available, cause they think it would, or at least could affect the radio reception negative.

I will test to swap antennas betwen my Prius+2017 and Auris TS HSD 2014 anyway (no shark fin though), and try to hear/see if theres any negative difference.

Swaped antennas betwen my Prius+2017 and Auris TS HSD 2014, which worked well so...

I bought an aftermarket antenna which is less than half the length of the orginal Prius+ one, and it works well. Easy to swap to.

There was Shark Fins to but they seems to need a lot more "surgery"

Now our Prius+ goes clear under the garage enter top
