The Overview (from the manufacturer)

The Cell Ranger STIX is the first device to feature a microprocessor, making it the next-generation of cell phone repeaters. The Cell Ranger series are driven by a microprocessor, which actively monitors the frequency and concentrates it's power where it is needed. This gives reliability and performance enhancements that you cannot get with traditional repeaters. The Cell Ranger STIX is wireless, and so works with all cell phone and data card models – from  the most basic handsets to the latest smartphones!. It is dual band, and so works with all US  carriers except Nextel.

Installing the Cell Ranger STIX is very easy. Just place the magnetic antenna on your car's roof or trunk, and plug the unit into your car's cigarette lighter. The cable from the antenna to the unit can be run through a door or trunk seal. Once plugged in, the Cell Ranger is up and running and improving your reception.

 ace and friends thoughts: Have you ever been driving along and boom, dropped call? I know that I certainly have had that happen on MANY, MANY occasions. How about when you try and make a call and there doesn't appear to be a signal? Again, yep, that's happened to me. So, when I was given the opportunity to try out  the Cell Ranger STIX signal booster, my first thought was, OH PLEASE, YES!

Initially reaction, could something actually help my dropped calls and signal strength, REALLY? Well, I gave it a good test run. First test, dropped calls! If you live in the Detroit area, you know that cell phone service is absolutely HORRIBLE through the city of Troy. Ok, before you say it, I know that I'm not suppose to use my cell phone in the city of Troy while driving... but this was a good reason, right? Well, the good news is, my phone service actually did not drop at all in it's usual drop spot. And yep, there is a specific location where calls ALWAYS drop in the city of Troy, fellow Detroit area residents... you know! Test one: PASS.

Second test, signal strength. So, where to test, where to test. Underground parking structure. Off to the Target's under-store parking garage.  Without the Cell Ranger STIX, one bar, hmmm... interesting. Hook up the Cell Ranger STIX (which by the way, super easy), and boom three bars, amazing. Who knew?! Test two: PASS.

Final thoughts: Two thumbs up!
