plenty of these after market aerials available for all models of cars so has any Mokka owner fitted one. apparently remove existing rod aerial and the shark fin fin covers the remaining fitting. There's a lead with threaded bolt attached which replaces the existing rod aerial.

Shark fins that fit over the old base only need a screw to attach the wire to the removed aerial so that part is not such an issue, just a case of finding the right screw, but the base of the Mokka aerial is big, not sure if there is one large enough to fit over it, then as others have said the original aerial has elements covering more than one frequency, but that's not an issue if you don't have or use sat nav or wi-fi.

Found a shark fin which fits the Mokka. It'son Amazon and called POSSBAY super functional and has a coil inside it. Has various threaded bolts also. It looks the real deal. review says dab signal is ok for bbc and local commercial stations so I might give it a try.

Interesting that one review notes it's bigger than most and fits over Mokka base, only 2 reviews the Mokka owner saying it was OK and another saying it was rubbish and sent it back, probably down to varying signal strength in different areas, the reception will never be as good as the original, so looks V function is the compromise

I think I will stick with the one that’s fitted as standard.
At least I now it work and I am£20 better off.
It’s not something you sit and look at all the time

I'm of the same opinion but then some are more bothered by looks or perhaps the original hits the garage door.

The gps receiver is in the base that the antenna screws into, ie the piece that's fixed to the car roof. Its not in the antenna itself.

The gps receiver is not combined with the aerial, the antenna and base are two separate items. The GPS receiver is in the base. The aerial can be changed without interfering with GPS. A shark fin can be placed over the top of the original base if you get one that's big enough.
