    Introduction

    The Wi-Fi hotspot provides an internet connection for your mobile device. Drivers with an Android version of the Driver App can connect to a Wi-Fi hotspot.

     

    Note: The hotspot is intended to be used with the Driver App. While use is not strictly limited, the hotspot is turned off after 500 MBs of data has been consumed during the monthly cycle. Additionally, your Vehicle Gateway firmware must be on the latest version to connect to the hotspot. See how to update your Vehicle Gateway firmware here.

    4. You will be prompted to enter a password. You can retrieve the password from the Fleet Dashboard or from your Fleet Manager. When received, simply enter it, and connect to the hotspot.

    Note: You will still need to connect the mobile device to the Vehicle Gateway via Bluetooth or USB to automatically log drive time. The Vehicle Gateway must detect the Engine ON within the last 45 minutes for Wi-Fi SSID to be broadcasted by the hotspot.
