Remember the good ole days of knowing when a person had a car phone based off of the antenna stuck to the window? Seems like just yesterday everyone had one. Later they progressed to into the fins on the roof if you bought the manufacturers branded/built in phone.
The questions: Did those exterior antennas really provide better reception? Did these car manufacturers branded phones that were detachable really make use of the shark fin antenna or just the one on the phone? Is it even possible for modern phones to make use of an exterior antenna on a vehicle since they have so many? If they do provide better reception should car manufacturers find a way to connect to the phone and build in all the antennas into the vehicle? Is a modern connected car antenna more powerful than a phones?
I realize the connected car exists now (Audi A8 to name one). A dedicated phone charging port that connects to the cars more powerful antennas would be handy.
Look forward to hearing your thoughts.
