SIM cards

Post by Angelcakes1987 » Tue Jun 07, 2016 9:15 am

Hi guys, not sure if it's already been discussed and my dealer is very vague, SIM cards....
I know I need one for my card, anyone got any ideas or have been told about what kind of plan I would need? How much data the car will eat every month? What uses the data everyday to run? I don't wanna be caught out with enormous data bills cos the damn thing wants to do constant software updates!
Any ideas or help would be fatefully received!
Thanks guys

** 11th November 2016 Update **

Just a heads up, it looks like there is a new 24 gigabyte SIM coming on the 17th November for the same price as the 12 gigabyte SIM.

Bargain :D

Hi,

I am currently using a 'Three" data SIM. It cost £30 for a one off SIM card that contains 12 gigabytes worth of data, which can be used over a 12 month period.

It works perfectly, it literally was a case of plugging it in, and enabling data within the settings (settings > features > communication).

If you don't turn on the Google maps feature within the navigation, the data usage is very low. You can also keep a track of your data usage within the settings.

I think I'll get through the whole 12 months as the data usage is pretty low day to day.

Link to the SIM I'm using:

I was told 500mb would be more than enough for traffic, live updates and all that sort of thing - but it's really how long is a piece of string right? If you drive 500 miles a month or 2,500 miles then the potential is for you to use more.... the secondary usage is then people using the wifi hotspot, are they watching videos, email or whatever...

May be this will help : https://my.ee.co.uk/data-calculator/

Think I pay £5 a month for 5gb of data with EE but that's part of a small business account... so not sure if available to everyone but certainly don't see myself using that!

I don't believe it does system updates over the air so no issues there it's more about traffic, mapping information and so on....

Can I ask... Is this for the pro system or the standard system? I have the standard, made the jump from the 2.0 to the 3.0 so no room in the budget for the pro system! Advice on this would be appreciated???

InControl Pro or if you added the Wifi hotspot option. The SIM for InControl Connect and so on is included and no charge for you - Jag have it built in.

No the car has a data sim to report back for the GPS and the remote climate and so on... it doesn't allow any connectivity from your side. The wifi hotspot or the Pro system give you that fucntionality but require you to provide a SIM card.

This forum is better than the dealership!
