How can I check if there is LTE-M cellular coverage in my area?

As long as you have LTE-M Verizon coverage in your area, the FitBark GPS will have a signal. We suggest checking out Verizon’s coverage map to ensure that your FitBark GPS will work near your home and its surrounding areas. On Verizon’s map page, click “Expand Interactive Map”, then filter by “LTE-M”. As of Q2 2020, Verizon’s LTE-M coverage (designed for smart devices) appears to match regular Verizon 4G LTE coverage, with the exclusion of certain US territories such as Hawaii and Puerto Rico.
