If you have recently purchased a CM100 LTE module, or LTE BlackVue model, then you'll likely need a SIM card to properly use the cloud feature these are for. This will be supplied by your Cell-Service provider, or another local provider. Here are some of the providers we recommend.
- Canada: Bell, Rogers, Telus Virgin & Videotron
