    I am building my first IOT project with the UDOO NEO. The next phase of this project is to connect it to cellular so it can communicate with our website. I have seen some posts saying a USB dongle is the best way to go with UDOO NEO.

    But then my understanding is that the NEO is compatible with Raspberry hats. But I am unsure of that. So, for instance, can I get the NEO with the operating system provided by UDOO to recognize the Raspberry PI hats listed on SixFab: https://sixfab.com/product/raspberry-pi-4g-lte-modem-kit.

    My preference is to use a hat over a USB stick as the antenna can be placed outside of the enclosure and its not subject to someone opening up the enclosure and taking the USB stick.

    Anyone have any experience with this? Or, can you provide suggestions?

    I was reading the specs for the NEO. It says that its compatible with Arduino shields. So my question is still the same, should I be trying to get an Arduino shield to work or should I use the USB stick?

    For sending data out the best way is using the Linux side. Most likely the Arduino shield you want to use needs a library that is not supported by the Neo Arduino. See also the following topic: https://www.udoo.org/forum/threads/known-neo-arduino-problems-overview.4513/

    So the USB device is then the easiest solution. If it works on a Raspberry Pi (not using the GPIO header of the PI) then it should be an easy implementation.
