When traveling with a teenager, having internet next to staying overnight at some cool places is very, very important !
During our 2019 trip operated my small Xiaomi WiFi repeater that I normally use when flying the Parrot Bebop 2 Drone to boost and stabilise the range signal. Running it in bridged mode to create our private network around the car. Thus relaying a free or occasional paid internet connections that we encounter while traveling with all of our connected devices: Phone(s), iPad(s), laptop, navigation, etc...
-Back home I dived into the connectivity puzzle
As boat owners often make use of the harbour Wifi connection when docked or off harbour 3G/4G LTE for online connections. I bumped into the TELTONIKA RUT240 4G LTE ROUTER. It operates on multivoltage, has 3 and 4G as well as WiFi. Can be configured as a private gateway / repeater. Thus fully complying with our needs. For starters it will operate with the standard antennas, but I might create an external antenna from a spare telescopic pole that is not used anymore.
