Maxview Roam Installation – Introduction

Please note: These instructions are for general guidance only. You must read and following all safety instructions before commencing any installation if you decide to DIY yourself. We always recommend that Maxview Roam installations are completed by one of our professional installers.

Positioning your Roam

Distance between Router and Antenna For best performance, we recommend mounting the router in close proximity to the roof mounted antenna. For best performance, only use the antennas standard 0.8m coaxial cables.

This means, once you have a suitable location for the router inside the vehicle, you must also ensure there is a suitable space on the roof to position the antenna in close proximity to the router. For example, if you would like to position your router in an overhead cupboard, we recommend mounting the antenna directly above the cupboard space.

Roof Antenna Position

We recommend leaving 30cm gap from obstacles around the antenna to avoid interference issues and mounting on a horizontal flat roof.*

Router Wi-Fi Antenna Space

The internal router can be mounted in a horizontal or vertical orientation. However, bear in mind that the Wi-Fi antenna must be vertical for maximum performance. You must leave enough space for this.

Power Supply

The router comes with 12V cigarette adaptor. You should ensure your router power supply can reach your preferred power source.

Below is an overview of the installation process.

1. The 3M seal provides a permanent installation. The adhesive is extremely strong and the antenna is not designed to be removed. Please ensure you are completely happy with your antenna’s position and orientation before installation.

2. The Roam antenna is designed to be mounted directly to a horizontal, flat and smooth surface such as GRP (Glass Reinforced Plastic) with the coaxial cables passing directly through the roof underneath the centre of the antenna. The standard installation is designed for roof thicknesses from 10mm up to 50mm.

If this does not suit your installation, please see our mounting accessories for a more suitable mounting option.

 

3. Once you have a suitable position for the antenna, cut out the supplied template. Use to mark the 25mm centre hole position and mark the outside of the antenna.

 

7. Clean the surface where the antenna will be installed, ensuring it is free from debris and grease.

 

8. Pass the cables through the hole and remove the self-adhesive backing from the 3M seal. Pass the cables through the roof and position the antenna with the embossed arrow facing the front of the vehicle and the outside edge of the antenna aligning with the marks added earlier.

IMPORTANT – Ensure the position of the antenna is central to your markings, as once stuck down, the antenna is not designed to be removed.

 

9. Press firmly around the edges of the antenna to ensure a watertight seal has been achieved.

 

10. From the inside of the vehicle, attach the clamp and turn clockwise onto the thread protruding from the bottom of the antenna. Continue to turn until the clamp is compressing the seal underneath the antenna.

 

11. Once in position, use 1 x No.6 Screw to secure the clamp in position.
