How to Connect a WiFi Hotspot Device for Cloud Features

***The U1000 model is the only one that offers Cloud access when in Parking Mode

Using a Hotspot device (built-in or external) will allow the Dash Cam to have internet access at all times, even when you are not in the car.

This will enable the Cloud Features, where you can check the vehicle's location, use the remote live view, and set the geo-fencing, from anywhere you are!

These devices (mobile hotspots) can be purchased through your cellular carrier, different data rates may apply. Please know that if you have Wi-Fi built in to your vehicle it is subject to turn off when the vehicle is off.
