Introduction

Monitors purchased before May 2020 were fitted with a Wi-Fi/GSM cellular antenna. However, if you need a 4G/LTE connection, you can replace that antenna with a LTE/GPS antenna using an upgrade antenna kit. The replacement antenna forgoes Wi-Fi but adds GPS capability. If required, you can maintain Wi-Fi by adding an internal Wi-Fi antenna to the monitor’s embedded PC.

  1. The monitor has a built-in cellular antenna on the outside roof of the enclosure (left side).

  3. Loosen the antenna retaining nut and remove the old antenna from the top of the monitor. Position the new 4G antenna and secure it using the supplied locknut and washer.
