15 FAQs on the Maxview Roam X WiFi System | 5G Ready Antenna
I need troubleshooting help with Maxview Roam or Roam X
If you are struggling to get the Roam system working properly then the first port of call should be our Roam Troubleshooting Page.: https://maxview.co.uk/maxview-roam-not-working-problems/
Will I be Able to Connect Smart Devices Such as Lights, CCTV Cameras and Smart Switches?
Yes, absolutely. You will be able to connect to the WiFi connection with your smart devices in the same way you connect them to your router at home.
It’s worth bearing in mind that the router will need to be continually powered for the WiFi connection to remain on, so if you are checking WiFi CCTV cameras then the router will need to be on also when you are not there. This may come down to what battery you have installed.
What about 5G Connectivity?
The Roam antenna is 5G ready and compatible with all 5G frequency bands as standard so it’s ready when this new technology arrives.
The router itself uses 3G and 4G. At the moment, the speeds which can be obained using our 3G/4G router and our antenna are sufficient for all every day uses of the internet, from checking emails to streaming Netflix or BBC iPlayer in HD.

Who is it For?

Do I need a SIM card?
The short answer is yes. There are many different types of SIM cards to choose from and how you choose them should depend on what type of user you are.
You will be streaming a lot of Netflix or BBC iPlayer? Then you will need a lot of data. If you are watching 1 hour of videos a day, you will need around 40GB of data a month. Double this if you are watching in HD.
You will just be listening to some music, browsing restaurants and checking your emails? This is much less intensive at around 10GB per month.
You can use a data calculator: https://www.tescomobile.com/data-calculator like this one from Tesco to estimate your data usage.
The other thing to consider is whether you need a single network SIM or multi-network SIM and how important having a connection all of the time is to you.
If you are generally in the same place then you can check what’s called a coverage checker, like this one from EE: https://coverage.ee.co.uk/coverage/ee to see the coverage of EE in your specific location, you can do the same for O2, Three and Vodafone.
Alternatively, if you are travelling around a lot and it’s essential you stay connected, you can have a multi-network SIM card, like our partners BroadbandGo. : https://broadbandgo.com/#/ This picks up the best network in the location you are in.
Since April 2022 both the Roam: https://maxview.co.uk/product/motorhome-wifi-caravan-wifi/ and Roam X products are being sent out with a 5GB free multi-network SIM card from our partner BroadbandGo. You will need to register this using their app to activate it.
How Does it work?
The Roam X uses a superfast 4G router to create a WiFi hotspot in your vehicle. The 5G ready antenna significantly improves the reception of the signal and is omnidirectional, so it will perform wherever you are and without adjustment. Simply fit and forget.
The Roam X kit will also connect to existing WiFi connections (such as your home) and repeat the signal.
