and ... Have you dealt with Wilson directly on your previous amp/device purchases and have you been happy with your purchases?
thanks for your time ependydad , you obviously have been doing this already...
I haven't had the setup for long but have been reading about them for a while.
I think there are 2 things about the RV kit that make it "better" than what I have:
1) a directional antenna will always perform better than an omnidirectional antenna BUT at the cost of requiring setup at each stay. You have to decide if that's a hassle or acceptable.
2) it provides a boost to a tremendously bigger area than the Drive 4G-X. For the 4G-X, you have to have your device (phone, hotspot, etc) within 1'-2' of the indoor antenna. The RV-edition boosts inside of the whole rig (and presumably some spillover outside). You can combat the 4G-X limitation with Bluetooth accessories, but again- you have to decide if this is a hassle or acceptable.
The negative to the RV edition is if you have a motorhome and want to use it while underway. It cannot be used while underway and requires that you be stationary.
Personally, I'm still holding out hope that Max Signal's Max Amp comes to market soon and hits the promises that they've made. IMO, it's the best of both worlds- BUT, it has been "coming soon" for what sounds like a year now.
