Adding a hotspot

Post by Slowpoke2008 » Sat Oct 05, 2019 6:44 pm

Is it possible to hook up a mobile hotspot (not my phone) to the head unit? Thinking of trying an Inseego Global Modem USB800 plugged into one of the USB ports so I don't have to have my phone directly connected.

Hi Slowpoke2008.

We don’t recommend trying to use a USB modem as that may be tough to configure and get to work. Why not just use a MiFi (personal hotspot) and leave it in the glovebox? That way, you have WiFi for your Insane Audio head unit as well as other devices in the vehicle. There are lots of these available and some carriers (i.e. T-Mobile) even make an OBDII powered hotspot.

Hope this helps!
