That seems a steep price. Why not use your phone as a hot spot when you need to. Being able to use my phone as a hot spot doesn't cost me anymore a month.
I felt this way about the WiFi Hotspot
First you need a Smart Phone $$$$$
Then you need Uconnect Access, Uconnect is a digital hub that vastly improves on prior generations. But it costs $20 per month after a free one-year trial
A Wi-Fi hotspot option costs $10 per day, $20 per week, or $35 per month at regular prices
I only have a Flip Phone, so i don't have to do anything except take a Laptop computer where ever i go & i stay at a motel that has free WiFi
I can't do any thing except use the normal Ram Hands Free Calling & voice Messaging & use the VR to help me to Navigate, while i am driving
I save a ton of money that way
No smart phone, save $600+
No Uconnect Access, save $20 per month
No WiFi Hotspot save $35 per month
I'm a week in with my 2018 and the hotspot free trial is probably one of the few things I haven't made sure to set up. Got a pretty good setup with my cell as hotspot (funded through my work) but I'm interested to see what the newest UConnect setup can provide especially while free and a couple of family road trips coming up.
im about to activate mine.. i have AT&T plan which is unlimited but CANNOT do hotspot since its part of the package.
2 days ago i sold my iPhone X and bought Note 8 (nano sim swap). to my surprised my hotspot is working lol. so for now im good!
Will use the free trial heading down to HHI this year. Only daughter will be using it while im driving. Will not be reupping after. Maybe buy a month once a year for family trip but, that's it.
What is everyone doing in their vehicles that a dedicated, year round, wifi is needed in them? Serious question.
Sirius Guardian does the same thing as Uconnect Access
It gives you the ability to connect your phone to your FCA vehicle & use the APPS
The WiFi APP allows you to get it for just one day, or just one week, or just for one month
With the monthly plan, you can use it month after month if you choose to
