Re: Gobi1000 wwan card interface

The WWAN card uses a USB 2.0 interface to the host.  If the card were to be replaced, it would have to be with one that is approved for that system or it will not work.  There are methods used to prevent unauthorized cards from being used to ensure FCC compliance.  The other hazard in replacing one of these cards is that the antenna cable connectors are small and fragile.
