Can anyone explain the little protruberance located almost central at the top of the binnacle. Its like a little shark fin sticking up and for the life of me I can't figure out why on this otherwise symmetrical landscape should there be a shark fin....

It is the GPS antenna and on satellite radio equipped vehicles it contains the antenna for that too,

By "binnacle", do you mean dashboard? Somehow, I don't think you referring to the shark fin on the rear portion of the roof. If you mean dashboard, I would like to see a picture of the "shark fin" you are talking about.

I have taken the pic, I guess shark fin was a poor description more like a radio push button really. I have no idea how to pit this pic on this page. I get a message asking what is my html or something? I have loaded it onto my gallery maybe you can find it there as I haven't a clue, I'm a real numbnuts when it comes to finding my way around these forums.
