This in-cradle mobile signal amplifier boosts Cellular Reception in Trucks and RVs Instantly! 60 Days Money Back Satisfaction Guarantee. This single cellular device cell phone booster kit boosts 3G & 4G LTE reception inside road or marine vehicle. It has a roof mount powerful earth magnet antenna that stays securely attached to roof of on-road vehicles and marine vessels despite high wind speeds. The Drive Sleek OTR is a powerful cell phone signal booster specifically designed for the needs of today’s modern truck driver. If you’re in your truck all day everyday, your cab needs to feel like an extension of your home and staying connected is a crucial part of that.
New legislations have mandated that cell phones must be out of hand, meaning that a hands free solution must be in place when operating a vehicle. While this is a safety feature for the driver, it does pose an issue for fleets, as they rely upon communications to secure efficiency in delivery and transport. The common cradle does not suffice for the phone, due to the unstable design (most attach to the air ventilation system by a flimsy clip). Additionally, the solutions from many vendors fail to address the secondary issue of using a cell phone within a fleet vehicle, signal strength. If anything, the solutions for hands-free mounting minimize the effectiveness of the cellphone. Therefore, it is essential for fleet operators to have a cell phone signal booster which is equipped with a cradle that helps to enhance the usage of the device, wherever the vehicle may operate.
Using a fleet grade cellphone signal booster helps your cellphones to be more efficient. Typically, if you purchase a booster through your network, you are limited to the towers and to the strength of the signals from that networks towers. Additionally, the strength of the signal is highly dependent upon the type of phone that you have. For example, you may find that a booster only works with 3rd or 4th generation phones or with the latest iPhone. This is problematic for those with older phones, or for fleets which have operators on various networks.
A weBoost cradle cellphone signal booster works by scanning the air for various existing signals and then amplifying signal for maximum signal strength. Because the signals use all of those from surrounding towers, as well as signals which are typically overlooked by other boosters, you may be able to boost your signal even when in a dead zone.
An intention of the Drive Sleek OTR is to boost cellphone signals for fleet designed vehicles, allowing for the maximum functionality from their cellphones and other such devise. The Drive Sleek OTR is based upon a 3 Step cellphone boost. Firstly, the signal is received from a powerful antenna. The antenna delivers the signal to the boosters. At the second stage, the booster optimizes the signal (amplifies/boosts it). Finally, the booster broadcasts the signal back to your cellular phone. And while the process may, from reading, seem to be time consuming, the entire process takes fractions of a second.
Drive Sleek OTR cellphone signal boosters are specifically designed for truck drivers of commercial level vehicles. The product is designed and manufactured by weBoost. It is therefore catered to the brands which the company's other boosters and brand encompass. The networks which are best suited for a Drive Sleek OTR include:
In regard to the type of phones which work best with the Drive Sleek OTR, the preferred devices are those which run off of a 3G or a 4G data speed. While you may gain a boost in signal strength from a 2G phone, you may find that the 2G data-based phones do not have optimal technology and capabilities to see a substantial increase with the booster.
It is important to note that the Drive Sleek OTR is intended for cellphone use, not for CB usage. While the 5G networks will work on a very similar system as the CB, current phones are fundamentally different than that of the existing networks. Primarily, the signals are based upon relationships with towers and network points rather than upon radio waves or AM/FM frequencies. That being stated, when mounting your cellphone signal booster to your truck, you will need to ensure that the antenna for your CB and the antenna for the Drive Sleek OTR are not within 12 inches from one another, as there could be interference between the two devices if such antennas are placed too closely together.
All signal boosters offered by weBoost are tested at the facility to ensure that they are FCC compliant. Therefore, purchasers should not alter the programing or the hardware, as this could disrupt the effectiveness of the device. Boosters cannot be altered without factory reprogramming and hardware disabling. This is a safety feature of the device to minimize the risk of unintentional adjustments and non-FCC compliance.
Drive Sleek OTR signal boosters amplify incoming and outgoing signals. They do not alter the signals, but rather boost signals. Because the amplifier works with various frequencies, if there is a signal which is too high or a frequency which would harm the device, or if there is oscillation, the booster will (as a safety measure) power down. The booster will resume its functions in 1 minute, given there are no more potential hazards to the system. If the problem persists, the booster will permanently shut off the troublesome band until a manually restart has been given.
When you purchase a Drive Sleek OTR, the first thing that you will notice upon delivery of your package, is that there are several components to the booster. Specifically, each package contains:
The packaging is rather small for all the content measuring only 12.5 inches by 3.5 inches on the top/bottom and 12.25 by 21.75 from the Front and back. Overall weight for the package is roughly 5.325 pounds. If there are substantial differences in the weight, double check the contents for duplicates or missing pieces. Additionally, all packages should be checked for any dents/damage prior to opening, as such could be a sign of damaged equipment (this is rare).
The specifications for the Drive Sleek OTR is as follows:
Please note that the power uplink and downlink is based for a single cell phone dBm. All Drive Sleek OTR signal boosters comply with part 15 of the FCC rules of operation. The rules specifies that the device does not cause harmful interference and that the device accepts interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operations.
The weBoost Drive Sleek OTR On the Road Cell Phone Signal Booster comes with a 2 year warranty. However, this warranty is contingent upon the proper use of the device. Only use the power supply provided in the packaging to minimize any damage to the device.
As previously mentioned, the antenna of your cell phone signal booster should not be placed with 12” of any existing antennas on the truck. You can mount the antenna from any of the CB mounting points or antenna mounting points on the vehicle. Antenna mounting should be above the metal of the cab to minimize the risk of any interference or disruption to the signal booster. It is not required that the antenna be mounted above the wind deflector, though it is suggested for trucks which operate primarily in remote locations.
Though there are several components available for the antenna, not all the components, extensions, and/or adapters will be necessary for your truck. Primarily, you have three to four ideal locations for the antenna mount. These are on the upper side, the top of the mirror, on the mirror arm, or on the rear of the cab (depending upon the type of truck you have these locations may change slightly). Again, the height of the antenna should clear the metal of the cab. Should you determine that you need to have a mast extension, fit the cable from the antenna to the mast extension. Do NOT add thread locker at this point. You need to ensure that all the pieces fit well and that there is substantial clearance. If all is well, use the thread locker packets provided in the kit and screw the OTR antenna into place. Remember, a little bit of the locker goes a long way. Also, once applied, the locker is substantially more difficult to adjust. The best practice is to check and double check the height and connection before applying thread locker.
Should you require a side mount adapter, first determine if you need the mast extension as well. If you need the extension, add this first. Once the antenna extension is in place, test the side adapter. Then connect the side adapter to the main part of the assembly (the mast or the antenna). Do this from the bottom up to avoid any twisting of the cable.
Antenna springs are intended to relieve stress from the antenna mount and should only be used on shorter masts. Also, only the antenna spring provided in the package should be used. Ensure that the threads of the antenna and the mount match. Ideally, the antenna spring should only be added to the 17 and 32” masts. The 42” mast, because it contains multiple extenders, is not to have an antenna spring.
Once you have the antenna in place, you will need to thread the cable from the outside antenna into the cabin of your truck. The cable is strong enough that it can be threaded through the door without damaging the cable. Depending upon the placement of the antenna and the style of the cab, you may need to drill a small hole to connect the cable from the outside to the interior.
The signal booster is shaped much like a laptop battery back, meaning that you have an oval design to the width and an elongated depth to the booster. The booster has an existing cable coming from the far side of the booster. Place this away from the cable from the antenna. On the booster locate the L antenna and the hole next to it. This is where the connection to the booster occurs. When connecting the cable do not use excessive force as this will damage the product. Push the cable only till you hear a click, noting that it is secure.
Unlike the antenna, the mounting of the signal booster does not influence the functionality of the device. As such, it is strongly encouraged to place the mount where the operator will not trip over the cables or the booster (as this could result in damage to the cell phone signal booster). Mounting under a seat, in the back of the cabin, or placed securely overhead is best.
The base of the signal booster is designed with Velcro to attach to carpet and other such materials. In the manual the base side of the mount may be referred to as the hook side.
The cradle and the power connection for the Drive Sleek OTR cellphone signal booster must lay with 15ft of the booster, preferably less as the fixed cable is only 15’. The cradle connects through a snap connector. Once all components are connected, the power cable connects to any 12V CLA port on the vehicle. Ensure that you connect both the 12V and the power to the cable (marked with a dashed line on the booster). Please note that only 12V ports are supported with the Drive Sleek OTR signal booster. If you have different power options on your truck, please consider a power adapter, or contact us to help you determine the best cellphone signal booster for your fleet vehicle.
Cradle mounts can be connected using a magnetic mount and ball swivel assembly. The Cradle extends on the top to allow for ease of mounting your smartphone. Please note that the FCC requires that you never use the cellphone and the mount next to your ear. For this reason, the cradle is designed so that none of the major ports on the phone are blocked, allowing for Bluetooth connectivity (sold separately through your phone provider) and compliance with cellphone usage legislation.
Magnet mounting is included as an option to the Drive Sleek OTR booster. Only use the equipment provided in the package for mounting your cellphone to the signal booster. Do not text or use the cellphone while the vehicle is in operation unless you have the proper hands-free attachments (sold through your network provider). When mounting the cable and connecting power, ensure that no cords interfere with the pedals, steering wheel, or shift knob.
Upon the first use of your signal booster, it is requested that you check your phone for any updates which may be pending. For Android based phones you will need to go to Settings > About Phone > System Updates. Apple based phones can check for updates by going to Settings > General > Software Updater. By ensuring that your phone has the latest updates, you maximize the potential for a stronger signal. If you find that your phone is sluggish prior to connecting it to the cradle but after performing updates, you may have a virus or technical issue with the device. Take your phone to your network provider for analysis.
While the devices are made for quality and durability, there may be times when there is a need to troubleshoot the device. The weBoost Drive Sleek OTR has a LED troubleshoot system to help with common issues.
If you see that the power light is on and that the LED on the cradle is white, this means that the booster is working properly and that you are obtaining the maximum gain from the device.
A light that is off shows that there is a power connection problem. Check all of the connections on the booster and cradle first. If you determine that the cables are properly connected, check the cable to the antenna. If the cable is twisted or if there is any fraying or cuts on the wire, contact the support team immediately. If there are no connectivity issues, but the light is still off, turn off the power from the vehicle and wait a full minute. Plug the power back in and allow the system to reset.
Still getting dropped calls? Regular dropped calls while the booster is being used could be a result of the phone’s function settings with the booster. Turn off the VoLTE/HD Voice in your phones settings.
If you experience sporadic power to the booster, it could be that there is a pinch in the cable wire. Look for any areas (specifically around the door or where the cable enters the cab) where the cable may have pinches, folds, creases, or twists. If the cable is fine, check the power connection at the booster. It may be that the power connection has become loose or that the connection to the box is damaged (a result usually of applying too much pressure to the connector). In such cases, you will need to contact the manufacturer for a replacement part.
For the best results, please follow the safety guidelines when using your fleet cell phone signal booster.
