Road Test - How-to

For Dealerships ONLY

 

Q:  Since wiTECH 2.0 requires an active internet connection, how do I complete a road test?

*Note: If your MicroPOD is not already connected to a network you will want to make sure the MicroPOD Setup Utility is open in the background. Open the MicroPOD Setup Utility and leave it open until you connect the MicroPOD to a wireless network. When you have finished setting up the wireless profile, click “Cancel” to close the MicroPOD Setup Utility.

  1. Enable the Hotspot network on your wireless device
