New internet antenna offers impressive features and price

Glomex Internet Antenna

June 10, 2021

From streaming a repair video to downloading weather data, there are countless reasons to have Internet access 15 miles from shore. The new Glomex weBBoat® 4G Lite EVO, available from GA Communications, delivers stable, high-speed connectivity from a compact, lightweight antenna that’s ideal for smaller boats with limited space.

The weBBoat 4G Lite EVO antenna has two 4G/3G diversity antennas, one Wi-Fi antenna and an integrated 3G/4G/Wi-Fi router. The combination creates a fast and secure hotspot that allows up to 24 unique Wi-Fi-enabled devices to be used simultaneously without signal or performance degradation. With advanced built-in switching software, the device can automatically switch from cellular data to Wi-Fi signal such as at a marina.

The weBBoat 4G Lite EVO’s built-in router has one LAN port and one WAN port for network expansion. The router also has an integrated single SIM card slot in the 8″ H x 5.5″ diameter UV-resistant radome for adding cellular data from any US-based GSM carrier. A video is at bit.ly/WeBBoat4GLiteEVO.

Three enhancements set the weBBoat 4G Lite EVO apart from all other marine Internet antennas: automatic APN, advanced SMS and satellite passthrough. Automatic APN connects the antenna’s SIM card to the carrier without user programming. Using the mobile app wizard, it will also program the country and operator. The advanced SMS function allows the device to manage Internet consumption, and read and send messages.

With the automatic satellite passthrough switching mode, the weBBoat 4G Lite EVO antenna connects V-SAT/SAT signals, an existing onboard router or any other available five-band satellite Internet connection. This allows it to stay connected even if the 4G signal is lost. Users can easily configure the device’s connection priority such as 4G first, then Wi-Fi. Additionally, a fixed connection can be set for specific applications.

The weBBoat 4G Lite EVO features an encrypted real-time peer-to-peer connection for remote set-up and service. This allows the user to maximize the performance and usefulness of their coastal Internet integrated system. Plus, Glomex technicians can log on remotely to troubleshoot software and power issues.

Truly plug-and-play, the weBBoat 4G Lite EVO requires minimal setup. All functions are configured through the newly enhanced Android or iOS mobile app. It uses a flush or optional 1″-14 thread mount and a single power lead. The Glomex weBBoat 4G Lite EVO costs USD$619.

Ravenna, Italy-based Glomex’s focus is to provide premium quality products at a fair price. With a technical services facility in South Carolina, it offers an extensive range of commercial and recreational marine antennas, Internet/cellular devices, vessel monitoring systems, mounts and related accessories. Its products are distributed through GA Communications LLC.

By Craig Ritchie

While Canadians may have been slower to warm to pontoon boats than our southern neighbours, that’s definitely changed as we see more of them gracing our waters every year. The latest data shows pontoon boats now represent around 30% of all new boats sold in Canada and it’s easy to understand why – with their interior space and tremendous versatility, pontoons are near-perfect family runabouts.

Cruising Georgian Bay’s 30,000 Islands: Canada’s Freshwater Paradise for Boaters

By Elizabeth Wilson, “Georgian Bay Beauties” (www.GeorgianBayBeauties.org)

The Plan

It’s a beautiful morning as we perform our pre-departure checklist, fire up the engines and prepare to release our lines. And if the long-range forecast of very low winds coupled with plenty of sunshine holds, that’s exactly what we need for the areas we plan to explore on this trip! 

We are departing Midland for a week of visiting some of the islands and anchorages within Georgian Bay’s “30,000 Islands” – specifically those along the western edge. These are the less protected islands which face toward wide-open Georgian Bay, where boaters often have to depart the small craft route and work a little harder at setting the hook but are then rewarded with magnificent western views, stunning sunsets, and so much to explore!
