Nautic Alert uses external low-profile antennas for increased range performance, as opposed to less expensive internal antennas that require close network proximity. LTE Insights include a small cellular antenna that can be used indoors and concealed behind a nav station panel or similar for optimal performance, and since LTE signals achieve much better range and wall penetration over previous generation 3G/2G signals, you can expect performance that delivers big out-of-the-box.
Iridium Insights should use our low-profile Iridium-approved antenna and our ready-to-install low-loss cables, to meet Iridium standards. The Iridium antenna can be flush-mounted or pipe, pole, or bracket mounted with our variety of adapters. It can also be mounted inside the cabin in some circumstances and shoot-through the hull, or located under a locker door for total stealth operation.
Insights are available with either a high-gain, tiny, puck-style GPS antenna, or an external high-gain/high-performance GPS antenna that is the same form factor as the Irdium antenna. The image below shows the external GPS or Iridium antenna in a low-profile flush-mount installation.
Insight is designed to be flush mounted or bracket mounted. A strong, inter-locking stainless steel mount bracket is available for Insight, which enables it to be mounted to base, wall, or ceiling surfaces and locked in place for optimum angle adjustments.
