The antenna winds around on your back glass via a small wire. It kind of blends in with the rear defroster.

It's passive. The blue wire has nothing to do with it. If it were boosted, it would use an accessory power lead. The blue wire is only a remote and is not intended to power anything. It only provides an on-off signal. If you were to power anything with the blue remote wire, I'd expect damage to the head unit.

Reception can vary from one unit to another even though you are using the same antenna. If you want better reception, I'd recommend a satelite radio with a hard wired modulator ...... or even better, hooked to an auxiliary input.
