What are the Best Cell Phone Signal Boosters for Cars, Trucks, RVs & Other Vehicles?

on 16th Jan 2019

The Problem with Weak Signals

Over 90% of Americans own a cell phone and 72% of them occasionally experience poor signal according to a Pew Reseach Center study

Despite what you think, it's only going to get worse. Why?

Many more people are using smartphones which require more data for internet, emails, games, photos, streaming video & music, social media, and other internet-dependent applications. And, of course, talk & text. So even with more cell towers, you're facing more users needing more big data,  competing against hundreds or thousands of people on one carrier cell tower.

This push and pull for quality cell signal leads to what you've probably faced in the past week: slow internet, dropped calls, poor call quality, spotty reception, and weak service. 

Especially when on the road, driving down in your car, truck, minivan, or vehicle, the constant movement and roaming make it difficult to maintain a reliable signal for your mobile needs.

The Main Causes of Dropped Calls on The Road

  1. Distance from cell tower
  2. Obstructions between your phone antenna and cell tower
  3. Car material like metal and glass interfering with signals

In remote, rural areas, distance from cell tower is usually the biggest culprit of poor reception. Although mountains, hills, and tall trees also disrupt cell signals easily. In the city, interference between your phone and tower is usually the biggest factor. Also depending on your vehicle, metal, glass, and other material can weaken or entirely block cell signals from effectively reaching your phone.

The Solution for Better Signal in Your Vehicle

A cell phone booster for your car, truck, RV, and even boat helps boost weak 3G & 4G LTE signals. It does this with 3 easy steps and equipment.

  1. The Outside Antenna pulls in the existing cellular signal.
  2. The Amplifier boosts the signal with patented technology up to 32X!
  3. The Inside Antenna rebroadcasts the enhanced signal throughout your vehicle.

All this results in better talk & text, crystal clear calls, reliable service & reception, fast internet, and more bars.

Here's a quick video about how a car cell phone booster works:

All our cell phone signal boosters (repeaters) work for all carriers (AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile, etc.) and for all cellular devices such as smartphones, cell phones, tablets, any internet-connected device that uses cell signals. 

Easy to install and more bars at the flip of a switch.

Below is our extensive list of the best cell phone signal boosters for cars, trucks, and other vehicles.

Best Signal Boosters For Cars and Trucks

Our Pick 

weboost drive 4g-m signal booster

weBoost Drive 4G-M (470121)

  • Boosts Voice, Text, 3G & 4G LTE Data
  • For multiple cell devices
  • Up to +50 dB Gain
  • Works with all Carriers, Networks, and Phones

Our Review:

So what if you already have your own car phone mount or prefer not to use one?

Then the weBoost Drive 4G-M is something even better. It's been the most popular & recommended car signal booster in North America for about 5 years running.

A slim outside antenna picks up signal. An indiscreet inside antenna (usually Velcroed to the driver seat) broadcasts signal inside. 

It boosts signal up to 4 cellular devices! Great for city and light off-the-grid use.

Ratings: 4★ out of 5 (184 reviews).

weBoost Drive 4G-X (470510)

  • Boosts Voice, Text Message, 3G & 4G LTE Data
  • For multiple cell devices
  • Up to +50 dB Gain
  • Pro Model: Up to 60% more reach from and to cell tower

Let's say you're really wanting to get away from it all, deep in the wild, but still want to keep connected to the world. 

The weBoost Drive 4G-X has your back, with 2x the uplink power compared to the Drive 4G-M. 

That means about 30-60% more reach to the cell tower than your typical car booster.

For drivers in extremely rural or poor signal areas, the Drive 4G-X is the top option to look at. Boosts signal up to 4 devices.

Ratings: 4.3★ out of 5 (350 reviews).

    • Boosts Voice, Text Messages, 3G & 4G LTE Data
    • For a single smartphone
    • Up to +23 dB Gain

    This is a car phone mount that boosts signal to the phone, and it's the cheapest of all the recommended car boosters here.

    ✓ phone car mount.

    ✓ Boosts 3G & 4G LTE signal.

    ✓ Lowest cost.

    The weBoost Drive Sleek boosts performance for a single phone when mounted on the cradle.
