I am considering getting my dealer to install the volvo bluetooth phone kit into my S40. Does anybody know if it uses an external antenna that will boost the signal or does it just use the handheld phone antenna? In some parts of Ireland the "external" antenna is needed at times.<p>Cheers!

Thanks! It's a pitty -- one of the major advantages of car kits is the 2 watt external antenna as opposed to the 0.6 watt internal phone antenna. Still going to get it installed as I've just received a €400 eur fine by Gardai (Irish police) for using a mobile phone while stopped at traffic lights. New laws come into force this week in Ireland and the police are on a blitz.

Remember that the bluetooth kit just plays the AUDIO from your handheld phone through the car's speakers. It is not the same as the Volvo GSM phone.
