______Step 1: Mount Outside Antenna

WORKS WITH ALL VEHICLES

Identify a location on the top of your vehicle that is: • Near the center of the roof • At least 12 inches away from any other antennas • At least 12 inches away from any windows (including sunroofs)

Cle an the surface where you will place the Outside Antenna.

Mount the Outside Antenna by placing on top of vehicle.

12 in. away from windows(including sunroofs)

NOTE: For aluminum roofs, an Adhesive Disk is included to mount the outside antenna (do not use if outside antenna will magnetize to the top of your vehicle).

DRIVE REACH VEHICLE SIGNAL BOOSTER3

NOTE: When going through a car wash, remember to remove your antenna.

NOTE: The cable is strong enough that it may be routed under weather stripping and shut in most vehicle doors without damaging the cable.

Car/Sedan: Cable routed into rear side door.

SUV/Van/Hatchback: Cable routed into top of hatchback door.

Truck: Cable routed into side door.

______(STEP 1 cont.)

See options below on how cable can be routed with different vehicles.

______Step 2: Mount Inside Antenna

Identify a place to mount the Inside Antenna, either on the side of the seat or on the dash and mount. The location should be at least 18 inches but no more than 36 inches from where the cellular device will be used. Use the Velcro® adhesive strip or the 2-sided adhesive strip provided and attach to the side of the antenna labeled “MOUNTING SIDE”. Then mount to desired location.

______Step 3: Connect Outside Antenna To Booster

Connect the cable from the Outside Antenna to the port labeled “Outside Antenna” on the Drive Reach booster.

from Outside Antenna

NOTE: The Velcro® strip on the bottom of the booster can also be used to keep booster from sliding around.

______Step 4: Connect Inside Antenna To Booster

Connect the cable from the Inside Antenna to the port labeled “Inside Antenna” on the booster.

______Step 5: Connect Power Supply To Booster

Connect the power supply cord to the end of the Booster, labeled “ ”, then plug the power adapter into vehicle’s 12V DC Power Supply. The Drive Reach will automatically power on when plugged in. If your Drive Reach is working correctly, the light on the Booster will be green. Use only the power supply provided in this package.

NOTE: If the 12V Cigarette Lighter port on your car is always on (even when your vehicle is turned off) and you will be parking for extended periods of time (more than a day), we recommend you turn the Booster off by switching the rocker to the “OFF” position. This will prevent the Drive Reach from draining the battery in your vehicle.

______Booster Light Patterns

Solid GreenThis indicates that your booster is functioning properly and there are no issues with installation.

Blinking Red, Then Solid GreenThis indicates that one or more of the booster bands has reduced power due to a minor 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.

Solid RedThis is due to a major oscillation (feedback) loop. 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.

Light OffIf the Drive Reach 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.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS How can I contact customer support?Customer Support can be reached Monday thru Friday 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 scale down it’s power or shut down to prevent damage.

The best way to keep these spheres of signal from overlapping is to maximize

separation between the inside and outside antennas.

______Troubleshooting

FIXING BLINKING OR SOLID RED ISSUESThis section is only applicable if the Booster is red or blinking red and you are not experiencing the desired signal boost.

1

2

3

Unplug the Booster’s power supply.

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.

Plug Power Supply back in.

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: Horizontal separation of the two antennas typically

requires a shorter separation distance than vertical separation.

If you are having any difficulties while testing or installing your Booster, contact our weBoost Customer Support team for assistance (866.294.1660).

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.

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.
