I always wondered the same thing here and thought it might have been for the HUD since my car doesn't have one.

I believe it's the ONSTAR system.

The black box on the top right corner of the windshield is the antenna for the Onstar system.

It's a bit of a eye sore, did GM continue with it's placement in all the C6's?

It's a secret recording device used by the government to track your ever move LMAO!!! Just joking it's for Onstar. I do recall being at a Corvette cruise and there was a guy with a 2005, that seriously thought it was a tracking device used by the government.

That antenna is that big? Seems like a eye sore. Is there a way to get a smaller one?

Same here, I think it's pretty concealed.

Well in a way it is.They have the ability now to turn off your car if the cops are chasing you! and it's a tracking device per say and can read your cars vitals..hence the monthly diagnostic reports.
