Mobile Wireless installation is user-friendly and shouldnÌ´Ì_ÌÎÌÌ´åÈt take more than 45 minutes. Mobile Wireless amplifier systems have three separate components which need to be installed and connected: the amplifier unit, the exterior antenna, and the interior antenna.
First, install the metal amplifier unit on the floor under the passenger seat using the four mounting screw holes for secure attachment. The included 6V car cigarette lighter power supply with a 6-foot cable is used to power the amplifier. Additional 6V AC wall power supplies and 6V DC hardwire vehicle kits are available.
Second, install the included exterior antenna (or separate FME-type antenna) in the desirable position on the high, unobstructed point of your vehicle (with at least 12 inches away from other antennas and 6 inches away from windows or sunroof). Adequate separation between exterior antenna and interior antenna is needed for oscillation-free operation. Different exterior antennas will have different installation procedures (magnet-mount, glass-mount, NMO, trucker, marine).
Third, install the interior antenna on the side on front row seat or other inside location facing away from the exterior antenna and covering most of the interior area. The Low Profile Ì´Ì_ÌÎÌÌÎåHershey BarÌ´Ì_ÌÎÌÌ´å antenna has a velcro adhesive strap for easy mounting and removal. The kit including the wired Cradle Plus antenna will also include the Hershey Bar antenna for setup flexibility (only one antenna may be used at any time).
Finally, connect the exterior and interior antenna to the amplifier and power the amplifier unit to turn the system on. Once connected and powered, your system will boost any compatible phone/network in its coverage area. A green light on the side of the amplifier indicates optimal operation. A red light indicates that an automatic shutdown has taken place. This is either due to the exterior antenna and amplifier cradle being too close, or being too close to a cellular tower.
Mobile Wireless systems are wireless (except the Cradle Plus option) and will cover the inside of most passenger cars with signal being stronger closer to the interior antenna (minimum 6-inch separation required). All vehicle occupants with compatible phone/networks will be covered and may use their phones in the regular way for all calling, texting, and browsing. Under ideal conditions, properly installed Mobile Wireless systems will cover the inside of any passenger car or small truck.
Optional home/office accessories are available to allow easy in-building installation and vehicle-to-building mobility. The amplifier-only option does not include an exterior antenna.

I don't use my unit on a regular basis and so I'm still evaluating. I have had some failures but don't know the cause. Maybe one of the antennas or maybe my placement. Hopefully I can find out before my warranty expires.

Have used the 801201 for over ten years in my fifth wheel trailer and just love it, works in RV parks where no service is available.I just ordered another one for a friend to use in his trailer. I only gave it 4 stars because their is always room for improvement.
This my fourth unit

I have gone through four units in the last ten years and I can’t say enough about them. I have only ever had to replace one power cord for a burnt our transformer. I have now one in my home, two in my vehicles and one in the travel trailer. I am a great believer in Wilson Boosters.
