What is the Difference in the weBoost Drive 4G-X, and the weBoost RV 4G Cellular Boosters?

Weboost RV-4G Cellular BoosterFor those thinking about a cellular booster, you will want to know the answer to this. The main difference is that the 4G-X can be used while in motion, and the RV-4G can only be used while stationary. The FCC states that any antenna over 50 dB gain cannot be used while in motion. The 4G-X has a 50 dB gain antenna and the RV-4G has a 60 dB gain antenna. TheRV-4G is easy to set up (watch our video on YouTube on set up and performance) and while the 4G-X can be an easy set up too, if you are planning to use it while in motion, it is more of a permanent set up. Another difference is that the RV-4G has a directional panel antenna, and the 4G-X has a magnetic base omnidirectional antenna. Both are great units, and each serves a slightly different purpose depending on what your RVing situation is. The first question to ask yourself when deciding on these units is do you need to boost your cellular signal while in motion. If you do then the Drive 4G-X is what you need; if not, then the easier set up once you get to a campground is the RV-4G.
