I am leaning in the direction of using it for a scanner antenna. It'll need some dissecting once it gets into my garage.

Of course knowing GM disconnecting the OnStar will throw the check engine light or some such on. I'm still researching the whole deal. Vehicle delivery will be about 5 weeks so I've got some time to come up with the answers.
