Product Description

Features of the Great Loop Marine weBoost Drive Reach system

  • Combines weBoost’s most powerful 5G/4G mobile cell phone signal booster with with your choice of high-gain marine antenna for the best possible signal while underway and while moored.
  • With its superior uplink power, the Drive Reach can send signal to towers that are twice as distant compared to older vehicle boosters.
  • Your choice of outside high-gain marine antenna sends the strongest possible signal to the Drive Reach booster for better cellular coverage in your boat and a stronger connection to the cell tower. (Get help picking the right antenna.) Choose from:
  • 29.5″ Poynting OMNI-493 UV‑stable ASA antenna with 6 to 9 dBi of gain.
  • 81.9″ RFI CDQ7199 Q-Fit® fiberglass antenna with 4.5 to 8.5 dBi of gain and a quick-release feature for easy, fast setup and takedown.
  • Top Signal’s high-performance inside directional EDGE panel antenna easily mounts to flat surfaces and also stands upright unmounted. (Learn more about the EDGE panel’s setup options.) Connect the antenna to the booster with 10 feet of thin, flexible 195 coax cable.
  • Provides up to 10 feet of improved signal coverage from the inside antenna.
  • Use in your boat and in your car, truck, or SUV with two sets of antennas—just disconnect and move the booster and power supply for improved signal in both.
  • Boosts 5G, 4G LTE, and 3G cell signal for multiple users on all carriers, including Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, UScellular, and more. (Learn more about 5G compatibility.)

The Drive Reach is the newest-generation cell phone signal booster for vehicles from Wilson Electronics. With an industry-leading 28.3 to 29.5 dBm of uplink power, the Drive Reach can send data to cell towers twice as far away compared to older boosters. Stay connected underway on lakes and rivers and in coastal waters. Experience faster 5G/4G data and fewer dropped calls, undelivered texts, and missed email messages.

Who is the Great Loop Marine weBoost Drive Reach system for?

When having a usable cell phone signal in your boat isn’t a luxury, it’s a critical necessity.

  • Boats that sail U.S. waterways and coastlines, as well as to Canada, Mexico, and the Caribbean. (The weBoost Drive Reach booster operates with most cellular carriers in the Western Hemisphere.)
  • Boats that need better signal in a specific area, such as around the helm or at a dining table.
  • Boats that need amplified signal for multiple cellular carriers simultaneously.
  • Vessels that are used in remote waterways, where cell service is poor.
  • Government agencies (fish and wildlife service, harbor patrol, police or sheriff’s department, etc.).
  • Anyone who needs the best, most reliable cell phone connectivity on the water.

Choose from two high-gain marine antennas

29.5″ Poynting OMNI-493

 Marine 5G/LTE 25.4-Inch Poynting OMNI-493 Omni Antenna 9 dBi 617-3800 MHz N-Female TS210912 A-OMNI-0493 mounting options The Poynting antenna connects to a 1″ × 14 thread marine mount (left) or to a 1½″‑2″ pole (right). (Click to enlarge.)

The Poynting OMNI-493 is the right choice if you need a shorter antenna or if you want the best reception for high-frequency cellular bands that have faster data rates. It has 6 dBi of gain on low-band cellular frequencies (617–960 MHz) and 9 dBi of gain on higher-band frequencies (1710–2700 MHz). Higher frequencies have a shorter range but offer faster data rates, so the Poynting OMNI-493 is the better option if faster data is more important for you than receiving signal at longer distances from cell towers.

The Poynting antenna attaches to a standard 1″ × 14 thread marine mount (with a ¾″ hole beneath the mount to run the coax cable) or to poles or posts 1½″ to 2″ in diameter. It’s also shorter than the RFI antenna, which may make it the better choice if you have minimum-clearance concerns for your vessel.

The Poynting OMNI-493 comes with your choice of 10′, 20′, 30′, 50′ or 75′ of low-loss TS-400 coax cable.

81.9″ RFI CDQ7199

 LTE Marine Antenna RFI Quick-Release 82-Inch Whip 8.5 dBi 698–2700 MHz with Ferrule & Cable TS210902 quick-release connector height The RFI whip antenna is 81.9″ (208 cm) tall, or about 6′ 10″. (Click to enlarge.)

The RFI CDQ7199 is the right choice if you want the best reception for low-frequency cellular bands that have a longer range. It has 8.5 dBi of gain on low-band cellular frequencies (617–960 MHz) and 4.5 to 5.5 dBi of gain on higher-band frequencies (1710–2700 MHz). Lower frequencies offer slower data rates but have a longer range, so the RFI CDQ7199 is the better option if receiving signal at longer distances from cell towers is more important for you than having faster data speeds.

The RFI antenna attaches to a standard 1″ × 14 thread marine mount. It includes RFI’s Q‑Fit® threaded quick-release connector for fast, easy takedown and setup for low minimum-clearance passages—the antenna attaches and detaches from its base in seconds.

The RFI CDQ7199 includes 16.4′ (5 m) of attached RG58 coax cable. You may extend that with a 10′, 20′, 30′, or 50′ run of low-loss TS-400 coax cable.

Do-it-yourself installation

You can install the Great Loop Marine weBoost Drive Reach yourself. It does not require professional help, although you can hire a marine electronics specialist to do the job for you.

(Learn more about marine antenna mounting options and antenna separation.)

Optional add-on power supplies

If you want to use your weBoost Drive Reach with an AC power source, we offer an optional 120V AC power supply.

We also offer an optional 12V DC hardwire power supply with an inline 3-amp fuse. The hardwire kit connects directly to your vessel’s DC power system, freeing up a 12V power socket and allowing for a less-cluttered installation.

To get the AC power supply, DC hardwire power supply, or both, use the dropdown option at the top of this page before clicking Add to Cart.

Get installation help with the weBoost smartphone app

The weBoost app measures signal performance, pinpoints the nearest cell tower, and shows your cell signal strength before and after installation. It includes step-by-step setup instructions and how-to videos for weBoost products.

Mounting options for the Top Signal EDGE flex-mount panel antenna

The Top Signal EDGE panel antenna has four installation configurations:

  1. Mount it vertically (forward-facing) on a drillable wall with a bracket and screws (included).
  2. Stand it up vertically (forward-facing) on any flat surface, such as a shelf, table, or desk.
  3. Mount it horizontally (downward-facing) on a drillable ceiling with a threaded post and nut (included).
  4. Because the antenna is so light (only 14 oz./0.4 kg), you may also mount it horizontally or vertically using Command™ Strips or similar adhesives (not included).

The back of the panel includes a channel for the pigtail cable so it will mount flush against walls and ceilings.

Command™ brand is a trademark of 3M.

Top Signal EDGE Flex-Mount Panel Antenna N-Female TS260820 with Threaded Post and Nut The removable nylon post and nut give you the option of mounting the EDGE panel antenna vertically on a drillable ceiling. (Click to enlarge.)
