Wilson’s weBoost Drive 4G-X Fleet 470221 Signal Booster Intro

In 1968, Jim Wilson founded Wilson Antenna. The company began manufacturing and selling CB antennas and two-way radios for fleet drivers, particularly truckers. Wilson Antenna went on to become the market leader, and truckers considered Wilson’s products a status symbol.

About Wilson Electronics.

When Wilson was working away from home in 1997 he experienced spotty cell phone coverage. This meant that he was unable to stay connected with his family. He then came up with an idea for a cell phone signal boosting system. It took three intensive years of research and development before he invented and then patented the very first cellular signal boosting solution. This is how Wilson Electronics was formed. Today, Wilson Electronics holds more than 40 patents for cellular signal boosters. It is still the industry market leader.

With so many unique and innovative advancements in technology, it is perhaps surprising that we're still experiencing problems trying to maintain reliable and clear cellular signal when untethered from wifi-enabled or wired locations. We have, of course, made enormous progress in improving cell services in unreliable areas, even out on the open road. However, the lingering problem of loose cable or wire running from the vehicle-top antenna into the door liner was not very professional solution for commercial vehicles. Now Wilson Electronics has a new product to solve the connection problem for commercial vehicles. It is called the Drive 4G-X Fleet.

Available right now, the Drive 4-GX Fleet is the perfect solution for people who do the majority of their job from within their vehicle. You may have already heard of the Drive 4G-X that serves truckers and others who experience unreliable cell service when in their vehicles. This new product, the Drive 4G-X Fleet, has been designed specifically to serve drivers operating fleet vehicles. It is ideal for commercial and fleet vehicles, including trucks, delivery vans, police cars, and more. It hides the cable or wire underneath the permanent mount fixed vehicle top antenna.

As with other Drive 4GX models, this Drive 4G-X Fleet kit also offers a powerful, professional-grade 4G vehicle booster. It ensures better voice and data, improved voice quality, fewer dropped calls, and faster uploads and downloads.

What is the Difference between the Drive 4G-X (470510) and the Drive 4G-X Fleet (470221)?

Currently, there are two existing Drive 4G-X booster solutions, but the new Drive 4G-X Fleet (470221) differs in that the antenna is permanently affixed. For this reason, the antenna must be professionally installed onto the vehicle. The existing Drive 4G-X (470510) booster solutions use magnetized outdoor antennas, whereas the Drive 4G-X Fleet is integrated through headliner with an RG-58 cable. Because no cabling is being run through the vehicle door, the installation is secure and clean with no loose wires hanging on top of vehicle such as car, truck, van, etc. Secondly, the power supply in Fleet version is hardwired so that it stays on while the vehicle is running and turns off when the vehicle is turned off.

Who Can Benefit from the New Drive 4G-X Fleet?

It is imperative that truckers and other drivers have the ability to stay connected while on the road, allowing them to make emergency calls, use navigation apps, keep up with important email, and so on. The new Drive 4G-X Fleet cell signal booster is the perfect booster product for anyone making deliveries, managing navigation, data logging along their routes, and more importantly, for first responders who are completely dependent on reliable and clear signal.

How the Drive 4G-X Fleet Works.

  • In order to access data and voice signals the outside antenna reaches out to the cell tower.
  • The outside signal is received by the booster.
  • The outside signal is boosted by the amplifier by up to 32 times, then sent to the inside antenna.
  • The boosted signal is then broadcast by the inside antenna in the vehicle.

Where tracking apps are used to supply information on a vehicle's location, and data (like miles driven) is logged, drivers are able to maintain reliable telematics. This is all made possible by the Drive 4G-X Fleet which provides a reliable and clear cellular connection.

Besides improving signal by up to 32 times, the booster enhances 3G and 4G LTE signals for everyone in the vehicle. And, just like all cellular signal boosting solutions from weBoost, the Drive 4G-X Fleet is carrier agnostic. It operates across all Canada and United States wireless carriers including AT&T, Verizon, US Cellular, T-Mobile, Sprint, and more.

  • When did fleets start using cell phones? I must be behind the times. I’ve seen earbuds and other handsfree options for using cell phones but I figured drivers spoke on traditional radios with their home base. It does make sense though if you can go hands free and use something like a signal booster to make sure the cell phones stay connected.

  • The world gets busier and busier and thanks to technology, employers can keep in touch with employees pretty much wherever they are. Cell phone boosters for vehicle fleets are a great way to guarantee access to employees. My biggest concern is employers who like to micro-manage everything. Will they keep calling up employees rather than letting employees take care of things themselves? Like any equipment, I guess it depends on how it’s used.

  • I don’t have a business fleet of vehicles but our family has its own fleet. I was wondering whether you can take a cell phone booster for your car and switch it with another car you own. For example, if a family member takes their car and I’m not using my booster, can they transfer it into their car? That would make things affordable for my family.

  • Didn’t know fleets were using cell phones so much to stay in touch with their home base and to talk to other vehicles in the fleet. I thought they were still using traditional radios. I suppose even if they are using radios, it’s good to have a backup with a cell phone. If you’re going to be using a cell phone while you’re driving (with a hands-free system I hope), a cell phone booster is likely to help. I’ve had many instances where I was driving only to get a dropped call for no reason. I can be talking with someone and it sounds like they’re sitting next to me only to lose them. It doesn’t make any sense but it happens.

  • I’ve wondered what people do when they can’t get a good signal in their car or other motor vehicle. This must be even more frustrating when you work for a business and your call quality is so bad it’s virtually useless. How do you talk to customers? How do you talk to your home office? Apparently, it’s because cell phone signals get weakened from things like driving through the country where you’re far away from a cell phone tower or something is weakening the signal like trees. An exterior cell phone signal booster will help you greatly and it looks like there are some great products for fleets in addition to exterior cell phone boosters for individual cars.

  • I’ve seen the name Wilson Electronics but didn’t know their history went back so far. It sounds like Jim Wilson and his company have been on the cutting edge of making sure people can stay in touch when they’re on the road. Wilson’s WeBoost signal boosters come up whenever you do a Google search for the best signal boosters and reading this article helps me understand why. They know what consumers need, the problems they face, and how to solve them.
