Default Shark fin identification

How can I tell what my ' fin does?

I've got a thin pink-ish cable running from mine and it appears an amplifier beside my rear window, so do I have the car phone only version?

So this is a car phone aerial only?

Are there any aftermarket parts that will do the job for cheaper than the stealer price (65)?

Hirschmann has a complete range of combi antennas.
May not be cheaper but offer more functions and better quality.
I sourced a GPS 916 V Flex for only 15 euro which does look a bit like the shark fin but I have not mounted it yet to see if it fits easily. Hole and connector may not fit at all.
