You don't, but based on the average usage your 12 mths will run out before your data!
I dont have the hotspot enabled, largely due to the fact that 4G wifi and teenagers dont mix. My averaged monthly usage is going to be in the low 100s MB. So yes the 12 mths will go first

For those worried about accidental data usage (such as devices believing they are on wifi and downloading large updates), you can set a data usage limit in the settings (e.g. set it to limit to 1GB per month).

Having set a 300mb limit for last 10 months & never bounced off limit once, in France it's been using 1GB every half day...

This is despite all devices wi-fi being turned off after day 1.

3 sim.

At a loss to understand why this is happening, but now run out if data with 4 days before return journey.....

Wow..thats really odd. Ive just come back to blighty from 10 days/2000 miles driving round Spain and France. Have used 206MB in the month i've owned the car (Ictp). I used it for:

1. Traffic updates - a bit hit and miss. Probably describe as indicative at best
2. Providing arrival time updates. Works ok. But its a pain that i couldnt use my phone contacts and had to add contacts manually
3. Connecting to the route planner app. Great idea, a bit rubbish in practice. Probably worked about 20% of the time. Mostly due to thinking that the car was about 300 miles from where i parked it (ie previous days location). Says it syncs to car, but car doesnt show it usually.

Didnt use satellite view or anything....

Anyone had problems replacing a pre-loaded SIM with a new one?

I've put the new one in, but it still says 'time to buy more data' when you use search/browser - as if it's still reading the old card....

When the car is connected, it shows the '3G' icon, but don't think it is actually working at all....

Is there something I'm missing, or is this another 'fault'?

So, no one has had any problems when replacing a sim card that has run out of data?

Thanks Jim!

Just got to the bottom of what was happening.

I replaced a 'Three' pre-paid sim with another, new 'Three' pre-paid. It didn't work. Kept telling me I needed to 'buy' more data. It showed the '3G' symbol, and according to connectivity settings was connected to 'Three' and had used 20mb over last two days, but traffic just said either ' not available now', or 'Expect light traffic' - even if sitting in a tailback....

I today bought an EE sim and put that in. After registering it via the browser, it then showed traffic info etc.

Put the new 'three' card back in and...... it worked without registering.

Either my car is, as suspected, a unique little bundle of querks, or the system gets 'stuck' if it gets presented with a new card on the same network & doesn't automatically re-set itself.

Or the world is flat, and I'm about to sail over the edge.......

See how you get on..... If you find 'Traffic info' etc stops, at least you'll have a clue why and know what to do! :D
