The multi-purpose rear-window aerial combines in one unit the vehicle aerials for remote operation of the central locking, optional auxiliary heating and navigation systems, and the aerial amplifiers for the radio and TV. The various aerials, which offer optimum reception and transmission quality, are integrated into the rear window. Radio stations and TV channels are picked up by an invisible film with a printed aerial conductor.
On the upper section of the rear window are the aerials for receiving signals from the radio remote control for operation of the central locking or auxiliary heating.
For the navigation system and the mobile phone, Volkswagen has developed new under-glass aerials, which are concealed under the black strip bordering the rear window.
The aerials, which are not visible from outside, are therefore optimally protected against damage and do not spoil the harmonious exterior look of the car.
