Car Wi-Fi Hotspot and its Benefits

Many tablets and laptops (or other devices), do not have an internet connection, which limits their use when out of Wi-Fi range. Since the AutoPi Telematics Unit is always online, it can be configured as a mobile hotspot for in-car use.


This makes it possible for passengers in the backseat to enjoy a more entertaining ride. Entertain your passengers by allowing them to surf, stream and game on the road.


Your kids will love this opportunity, especially if you are going for a long country-wide trip.


Car wifi hotspot feature is also very beneficial when you go for a business trip and need to manage a couple of tasks on the way. Having a wifi in your car allows you to surf on internet, send emails, make online video calls and basically manage any urgent task or problem you need to solve.
