    Introduction

    With the Wi-Fi hotspot feature, you can provide data directly to your Drivers for everyday use. Wi-Fi hotspot threshold feature ensures that a single device doesn’t use all your company’s data. You can set a threshold for each vehicle or for a default threshold for all vehicles to reduce abuse from individual users.

    Once the threshold is hit, the device’s speed is throttled, making streaming more difficult, whereby the Motive Driver App continues to work.

    Steps: Setting up a Wi-Fi hotspot threshold

    1. Log into Fleet Dashboard and click on the Admin icon in the left-hand side menu.

    Note: The default vehicle threshold is 3GB. The Wi-Fi Hotspot feature gets disabled for each vehicle once its limit has been reached. This means that once a vehicle reaches 3GB of data usage, its Wi-Fi hotspot is disabled. If the data plan’s limit for the company is reached, the Wi-Fi hotspot will be disabled before the vehicle threshold is reached.
