221 would have a similar one, but you would have identified that from the 202 and 210. Anyway, probably difficult to say from the antenna only.

Woah...I thought the Antenna on the Roof is the SOS/Emergency Call Signal Antenna ONLY? Yes?

And the Radio Antenna is built into the Windshield, in the Rear?

Are we confusing the two? Or am I plain Coocku ( ?? sic ) for Cocoa Puffs?

For a definite answer I guess the individual car should be identified. The rear window would usually have the radio and TV antennas. The roof antenna would do GPS and cell phone signals plus STH remote start receiver.

The GPS antenna isn't completely dummy, it has pre-amplifiers but as long as it has a coax cable, the actual GPS receiver would be "at the other end" as streetglover explains (this time the context was the visible part though, I would ignore the actual functionality).

We do not have Tele-Aid in Europe and I'm not familiar with the setup. I thought it would use more "hidden" antennas to make them more fail safe in accidents.
