weBoost Drive 4G-X (470510) vs. Drive 4G-M (470121, prev. 470108)

What is the difference between weBoost Drive 4G-X (470510) and weBoost Drive 4G-M (470121, prev. 470108)?

Price Difference.

The price difference is a whopping $100 between 4GX ($479.99) & 4GM ($379.99).

Rural driving versus City driving.

weBoost Drive 4G-X (470510) is ideal for rural country driving because it is a pro model with 60% more range. Whereas, weBoost Drive 4G-M (470121, prev. 470108) will truly suffice for city driving.

Why do we offer these two choices?

Different factors cause restricted cell phone signal reception in different places.

Example 1:

When driving in rural and remote country areas, the cell towers may be very far (30 to 50 miles away) causing weak cellular coverage in vehicles. In this case, the higher cost weBoost Drive 4G-X (470510) has better range (60% more) to attract signals from very faraway cell towers.

Example 2:

When driving in a city, towers being far apart is rarely the problem. In cities, the problem arises from concrete buildings blocking the reception. Therefore, all that is needed is amplification of existing signals by mobile signal amplifier which the lower cost weBoost Drive 4G-M (470121, previously 470108) is fully capable of doing.


Both models are excellent cellular signal boosters that perform very well. However, one performs better when driving in remote areas and it costs a bit more for its enhanced capability which is only required in areas where towers are very far away. Are you planning to drive to far away places frequently? If yes, Drive 4G-X would be recommended. If not, Drive 4G-M would more than suffice. Now that you know the precise differences between the two, you can make a more informed decision - 4G-X or 4G-M?
