I had the same concern -- I wasn't interested in one of those 'cradle' solutions or something where a single boosted phone has to be held within a foot or so of the interior antenna.
I have the newest RV version with the springloaded roof antenna. Good signal coverage throughout the van with that setup, multiple users, etc, as far as I've been able to tell.
As I understand it the 'standard' car version does require your phone to be close to the internal antenna. But it looks to me like the "RV/Truck" outside antenna is the only difference between the RV kit and the standard car kit. So it seems like the better outside antenna is what gives the system overall better interior coverage (officially within a 6 foot radius of the interior antenna IIRC, which pretty much covers the whole van if you place the interior antenna somewhat centrally).
