Can a MAX BR1 ENT LTEA (GLOBAL*) +OMNI-402 - OMNI-D MARINE & COASTAL LTE & WIFI ANTENNA (MIMO) System be localice?

Hi!

I’m wondering if the system above when installed in a boat can be localiced.

When you get data in your phone you can deactivate localization, can this be also done with the system so the boat it not localized?

Thanks

For phones, disabling localization stops the handset sharing localization data with its apps.
The only localization data a BR1 can get is GPS data and cell tower identification data. This is only typically accessed / available remotely using InControl.

If you are really security conscious you can disable incontrol2 management on the device which stops it talking to InControl at all. Or you could just disable GPS data collection in InControl2.

Really depends on what you want to achieve.

Thank you so much for your quick answer!

Have a great day :slight_smile:

And plenty of companies and people will still have your location data, including for marketing purposes. Somewhat recently, for many carriers you could plug a simple phone number into a web page and get anyone’s location, in real time. Crazy.
