Yup, it's a GSM antenna for the bluetooth phone prep. If you put your phone into a snap in holder, it uses tha car's antenna for a phone signal. If you just connect via bluetooth without using the holder, it doesn't use the fin.

I just assumed it was for the nav - mine doesn't have DAB, Bluetooth or phone prep.
