hi all
i have just bought a nokia N95 mobile phone does anybody
know is there a way of hooking up an external antenna to the bullbar without using a ck-7w bluetooth carkit,i just want a simple setup,cause i remember years ago you could pretty much just buy an antenna coupler and plug it straight into the phone.

for an external antenna

Theres no cradle available for the N95 that take a external antenna that I am aware of, the N95 is like most of the other Nokia of today that have not got an external antenna connector.

There is a company in USA who sell the stick on passive antenna connectors, It's a stick on square pad that has a patch lead coming out of the back.

There are some other ones that clip onto the phone so it can be removed.

I would say Force Technology will come out with one soon, they have just released the one for the E51.

We have the CW-7 Nokia bluetooth car kits and we use Force cradles for the 6120's and E51's that we have.

The only connection the car kit has from the CW-7 car kit is a phone charger so when the phone is in the cradle it will charge.

All the other functions are by Bluetooth.

The antenna connection is in the cradle.

Regards Richard

Hi Brentos,
Don't confuse the two issues here.
The CK-7W is a Bluetooth Hands Free that allows you to talk on the phone without holding on to it. See Herehttp://http://www.nokia.com.au/A4515781

Personally, I use a bluetooth BlueAnt Supertooth Light, a little unit that clips on the underside of your sun visor, and works very well for hands free.

To connect an external Aerial, some people use a patch lead or a cradle that is connecte from the aerial to plug into a port on the phone to give external aerial connectivity.

Nokia phone and N95s don't have such a port.

For some model nokia phones, there are cradles with an induction coil that boosts the signal to the phone (such as the Force Technologies ones for the 6120 Classic), and IMO, seem to work very well. However, there still is not one for the N95 yet as far as I am aware.
