On the front bar of out 200 series we have an Iridium satellite phone antenna, on the roof rack on one side we have a 8dB Next G antenna for our Next G modem, on the other side a 6.5dB UHF antenna and on the spare wheel carrier at the back a Codan 9350 Auto tune antenna for or HF radio
(yes ACMA we are licensed!).
Bluetooth has nothing to do with external antennas, bluetooth is a data transfer protocol enabling one peripheral to communicate wirelessly with another peripheral (mobile phone to in car phone kit or wireless GPS mouse to laptop).
In some applications an external antenna is used for Bluetooth but more in a commercial environment like a hospital or large office, Bluetooth has a average range of 10 to 15 meters.
Have seen antennas on vehicles for a wireless network (Wi-Fi, WLAN, WiIMAX) giving a range of about 2 kilometres or more.
