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.

 

A:  Road testing with wiTECH 2.0 can be completed using a cellular hotspot device by performing the following steps:

  1. Enable the Hotspot network on your wireless device
    1. For Apple iOS: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204023
    2. For Android: Refer to the phone manufacturer site or visit:  https://support.google.com/android/answer/3094742
