    The Wi-Fi hotspot provides an internet connection for your mobile device. Your Driver App can be connected with the Wi-Fi hotspot of the Vehicle Gateway. 


    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 Engine ON within the last 45 minutes for WiFi SSID to be broadcasted by the hotspot.


    Steps: Connecting Wi-Fi hotspot on iOS

    1. Navigate Settings on your mobile device.


    2. Select Wi-Fi. Make sure Wi-Fi is ON.


    3. Connect to the Wi-Fi network named Motive Hotspot - {VG S/N}.
    Note: You can find the Vehicle Gateway Serial Number on the bottom of the Vehicle Gateway or in the Vehicle Gateway Diagnostics Screen. 



    4. You will be prompted to enter a password. You can retrieve the password from the Motive Dashboard or your Fleet Manager. When received, simply enter it, and connect to the hotspot. You will not be prompted to enter your password again, as entering your password is only a one-time setup step.


    Note: The hotspot is intended to be used with the Motive 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 VG firmware must be on version 65015 or above to connect to the hotspot. See how to update your VG firmware here.


    * Transferring driving event data via USB is currently supported for Android devices only.
