Hi

Can someone confirm if using the sim via the car modem utilised 4G to then enable WiFi?

I have an unlimited phone sim (virgin) and was thinking of putting this into my car sim slot - or am I better to put it in a phone and connect the phone via the usb?

Just put it in the phone, and connect the phone via bluetooth. If necessary, use the app "Blue Car Tethering" to connect automatically.
The road is more important than the destination.

Thanks for the reply but it doesn’t really answer my question.
If putting the sim into the modem means I get the best and most convenient WiFi then I would rather do that but I don’t know if it is.

I can always connect a phone at any time on top of that if need be.

Must remember to keep at the dealer before delivery so that if possible the sim is there when I go to pick up the car.

Regarding the Glacier Silver, I do like it it is an interesting colour-as long as no one says when are you getting the car painted! I occasionally just think it a bit like primer!

I’ve followed the instructions to the letter. The car is connected but I can’t register for the account.
Apparently this is a known problem but has anyone got a fix?
I’ve started a thread in the technical/faults section

Thanks

Instructions worked perfectly for me with the supplied SIM, even easier with the SIM I already had installed.
