Installed a shorty 3" antenna on my 2008 TC and now the radio reception is bad. I know that can happen but it didn't on my Gti for the past 5 years which makes me wonder if it's the stock Pioneer unit.
Looking to get better head unit soon anyway but just still curious if anyone else had problems.
Yes, my audio is completely stock. I do believe it is the unit, yes. I know a lot of people with the shorty antenna that have swapped units and what-not and they have no reception problems. Sorry, forgot to mention that in my first post.

Depends on the type of antenna, not the head unit. If the antenna is metal, you won't get crap for stations. If it was the head unit, you would have this problem regardless of antenna type. The best antenna you can get as a "shorty" is an S2000 one.
