THE ALUMINUM CASING OF YOUR SIGNAL BOOSTER WILL ADJUST TO THE
TEMPERATURE OF ITS ENVIRONMENT, BUT IS DESIGNED TO PROTECT THE SIGNAL
BOOSTER TECHNOLOGY. FOR EXAMPLE, IN THE SUMMER, THE SIGNAL BOOSTER CASE
MAY BE AS HOT AS 150 DEGREES INSIDE YOUR VEHICLE. THESE HIGH TEMPERATURES
WILL NOT DAMAGE THE SIGNAL BOOSTER, NOR DO THEY POSE A FIRE RISK TO THE
VEHICLE. AGAIN, BE SURE TO PLACE YOUR SIGNAL BOOSTER IN A LOCATION WITH
ADEQUATE VENTILATION AND AWAY FROM DIRECT SUNLIGHT OR MOISTURE.
THE DRIVE 4G-X SIGNAL BOOSTER MAY REMAIN ON, IN VEHICLES WHOSE 12V DC POWER
SOURCES DO NOT AUTOMATICALLY SHUTDOWN WHEN THE VEHICLE IS TURNED OFF.
THIS COULD RESULT IN DISCHARGING THE VEHICLES BATTERY IN ONE TO TWO DAYS.

4G-OTR ANTENNA INSTALLATION
Select a location on one of the mirror rails to mount
the 4G-OTR Antenna that is:
• At least 12 inches from any other antennas.
• Free of obstructions.
• At least 6 inches from any windows
(including sunroofs).
Remove existing nut from mount as shown. Mount
antenna with fitted disc washer and nut provided in
package. Add included thread lock on all threads.
Fasten nut with lip in

RUNNING ANTENNA CABLE
Run the Outside Antenna cable into the vehicle.
The cable is strong enough that it may be shut in
most vehicle doors without damaging the cable.
For a cleaner look, carefully pull down the door
seal, run the cable under the seal, and push the
seal back into place. This method reduces wear on
the cable as the door opens and closes.

INSIDE ANTENNA INSTALLATION
Identify a place on the side of the seat to mount
the Slim Low Profile Antenna. The location should
be at least 18 inches but no more than 36 inches
from where the cellular device will be used. Peel
off the backing of the Velcro® and attach to seat.

CONNECT COAX CABLES TO DRIVE 4G-X
Select a location for the Drive 4G-X that is free
from excessive heat, direct sunlight and moisture
and that has proper ventilation. Good locations
include underneath a seat or under the dashboard.
Connect the cable from the 4G-OTR Antenna to the
port labeled “Outside Antenna” on the Drive 4G-X
and connect the cable from the Slim Low Profile
Antenna to the port labeled “Inside Antenna” on
the booster.

CONNECT TO POWER SUPPLY
Plug the power adapter into vehicle’s 12V DC
power supply. Power up your Drive 4G-X by
flipping the switch on the back of the DC power
adapter on. If your Drive 4G-X is working correctly,
the light will be green.
NOTE: If light is not green on your weBoost booster,
please refer to the troubleshooting section on page

CELL PHONE SIGNAL BOOSTER
(SPECIFICATIONS cont.)
Each Signal Booster is individually tested and factory set to ensure FCC compliance. The Signal Booster cannot
be adjusted without factory reprogramming or disabling the hardware. The Signal Booster will amplify, but not
alter incoming and outgoing signals in order to increase coverage of authorized frequency bands only. If the
Signal Booster is not in use for five minutes, it will reduce gain until a signal is detected. If a detected signal is
too high in a frequency band, or if the Signal Booster detects an oscillation, the Signal Booster will automatically
turn the power off on that band. For a detected oscillation the Signal Booster will automatically resume normal
operation after a minimum of 1 minute. After 5 (five) such automatic restarts, any problematic bands are
permanently shut off until the Signal Booster has been manually restarted by momentarily removing power from
the Signal Booster. Noise power, gain, and linearity are maintained by the Signal Booster’s microprocessor.
The Manufacturer’s rated output power of this equipment is for single carrier operation. For situations when
multiple carrier signals are present, the rating would have to be reduced by 3.5 dB, especially where the output
signal is re-radiated and can cause interference to adjacent band users. This power reduction is to be by
means of input power or gain reduction and not by an attenuator at the output of the device.
Frequently Asked
Questions
What hours can I contact customer support?
Customer Support can be reached 7 days a week by calling 866.294.1660, or
through our support site at support.weboost.com
Why do I need to create distance between the booster and the antenna?
Antennas connected to a booster create spheres of signal. When these spheres
overlap, a condition called oscillation occurs. Oscillation can be thought of as noise,
which causes the booster to shut down to prevent damage. The best way to keep
these spheres of signal from overlapping is to maximize separation between the
Booster and Antenna.

Safety Guidelines
Warnings
Use only the power supply provided in this package. Use of a non-weBoost
product may damage your equipment.
The Signal Booster unit is designed for use in an indoor, temperature-controlled
environment (less than 150 degrees Fahrenheit). It is not intended for use in attics
or similar locations subject to temperatures in excess of that range.
The inside panel and dome antennas must have 6’ of separation distance from all
active users, and the low profile antennas must have 18” of separation distance
from all active users.
Connecting the Signal Booster directly to the cell phone with use of an adapter will
damage the cell phone.
The Outside Antenna must be installed no higher than 10 meters (32’9”) above ground.
Any antenna used with this device must be located at least 8 inches from all persons
RF Safety Warning: Any antenna used with this device must be located at least 8 inches from all persons.
This is a CONSUMER device.
BEFORE USE, you MUST REGISTER THIS DEVICE with your wireless provider and
have your provider’s consent. Most wireless providers consent to the use of signal
boosters. Some providers may not consent to the use of this device on their network.
If you are unsure, contact your provider.
You MUST operate this device with approved antennas and cables as specified by the
manufacturer. Antennas MUST be installed at least 20 cm (8 inches) from any person.
You MUST cease operating this device immediately if requested by the FCC or a
licensed wireless service provider.
WARNING. E911 location information may not be provided or may be inaccurate for
calls served by using this device.
This device complies with Part 15 of FCC rules. Operation is subject to two conditions: (1) This device may not
cause harmful interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference received, including interference that
may cause undesired operation. Changes or modifications not expressly approved by weBoost could void the
authority to operate this equipment.

CELL PHONE SIGNAL BOOSTER
Light Patterns
SOLID GREEN — This indicates that your booster is functioning properly and there
are no issues with installation.
BLINKING RED, THEN SOLID GREEN —This indicates that one or more of the
booster bands has reduced power due to a feedback loop condition called
oscillation. This is a built in safety feature to prevent harmful interference with a
nearby cell tower. If you are already experiencing the desired signal boost, then no
further adjustments are necessary. If you are not experiencing the desired boost in
coverage then refer to the Troubleshooting section below.
SOLID RED — This is due to a feedback loop condition called oscillation. This is a
built in safety feature that causes a band to shut off to prevent harmful interference
with a nearby cell tower. Refer to Troubleshooting section below.
Troubleshooting
Fixing Blinking or Solid Red Issues
This section is only applicable if the booster is red or blinking red and you are not
experiencing the desired signal boost.
1. Unplug the Booster’s power supply.
2. Relocate the inside and outside antenna further from each other. The objective is
to increase the separation distance between them, so that they will not create this
feedback condition discussed before.
3. Plug power supply back in.
4. Monitor the indicator light on your booster. If, after a few seconds of ‘power
on’, a solid or blinking red light appears, repeat steps 1 through 3. Increase the
separation distance until the condition is corrected and/or desired coverage area is
achieved. Note: Parallel separation of the two antennas typically requires a shorter
separation distance than perpendicular separation. A combination of vertical and
horizontal separation distance also works to prevent oscillation.
5. If you are having any difficulties while testing or installing your booster, contact
our weBoost Customer Support team for assistance (866.294.1660).

(TROUBLESHOOTING cont.)
Light Off
If the Drive 4G-X Signal Booster’s light is off, verify your power supply has power.
NOTE: The Signal Booster can be reset by disconnecting and reconnecting
the power supply.
After troubleshooting you must initiate a new power cycle by disconnecting and
then reconnecting power to the Booster.
ALWAYS disconnect and reconnect power from the power supply adapter, NEVER
from the Booster.
