INCONTROL PROTECT FAQS

INCONTROL WI-FI HOTSPOT -

  • Wi-Fi Hotspot delivers a 3G Wi-Fi hotspot in your car. Wi-Fi Hotspot enables passengers to connect up to 8 devices to the internet using an in-car 3G connection. It utilises the roof mounted antenna increasing the reliability of continuous connection whilst on the move. It delivers better data connection strength (compared to a smartphone in the vehicle) as the metal structure of the vehicle can restrict data reception. In addition to the hardware fitted to the vehicle, you will have to purchase a mobile SIM card and insert it in the SIM card reader located in your vehicle.
  • Wi-Fi Hotspot operates through a mobile phone network. It will deliver a better data connection than a smartphone in the vehicle, but will not operate in areas where no mobile phone network exists.
  • Yes. The system requires a separate 3G SIM card with a data plan/allowance to work. The system provides mobile internet in the car for Wi-Fi capable devices such as mobile phones, tablets etc. In many ways it operates in a similar way to a "3G dongle".
  • You need a 3G "Data only SIM card". Sometimes these are called "Internet only SIM" or "Mobile broadband SIMs". This will be a different SIM card to that fitted in your mobile phone.
  • Yes, your SIM should have a data allowance for your Wi-Fi Hotspot to work. Voice only SIMs (as used on some mobile phones) cannot deliver data.
  • This depends on the mobile service provider and type of the plan you have. Some providers offer "shared plans" where you can get an additional SIM for your Wi-Fi Hotspot and attach it to your shared plan. This means that your Wi-Fi Hotspot and your mobile phone consume the data from the shared allowance and you will get 1 bill.
  • At present Wi-Fi Hotspot is a linked feature with InControl Connect. Wi-Fi Hotspot can only be specified on vehicles fitted with InControl Connect.
  • Wi-Fi Hotspot operates on 3G networks. The majority of UK networks support 3G functionality. Wi-Fi Hotspot is not compatible with 4G.
