I use HAM Tracker on the iPhone while phone is docked in my car kit. The car kit has a passive antenna connected to a high gain external antenna. This works VERY well.
Ive done testing side by side with my 10W tinytracker without issues as yet.

I have iPhone OpenAPRS and IBCNU etc all for the iPhone to run as well which is great but doesn't solve the long term solution of having it running when I am not even in the car with my iPhone or the coverage is marginal if any at all on the iPhone but GPRS modem can with External Ant get coverage which happens more out this way than most people want to consider. Smartphone tech is only good when good coverage cause they don't come with external Antenna sockets.
I have thought about HF but I don't have the HF rig in the ute full time only when travel on holidays and when this is the case I will certainly be using it, one reason I decided on TT4 cause it is so versitile in doing so many things from digi to tracker and igate etc all in one package.
