Clarification is sought from a man with small amount of IT connectivity awareness. My car is arriving next week from the factory and I am nailing down the last actions. I have attempted to read up through previous posts to get a line of what I need to know, but it is clear that those posting understand the subject at a much higher level than me. I have grandchildren and looking to utilise the 4G EE Buzzard to enable a mobile WiFi Hotspot as and when, as well as utilising the features that require a SIM through ICTP.
1. Does the SIM in the EE Buzzard replace the need for the SIM in the car set up, or do I need two SIMS ?
2. The Buzzard appears 'locked' to EE for their SIMS to be used, given things change in regard to promotions, are there any current good deals?
3. The Buzzard shows as using a 12v supply, has anyone used one and in such a location, does it fit/practical, given the immediate surroundings,
the diagram shows the 12V in the lower dash by the gear selector?
The other two locations for 12V shown in diagram are the rear centre consul and the boot. Both locations are not practical as it states you have to press the Buzzard to start it up each time, and kids will knock in first option. The original Buzzard I understand was automatic, not sure why they changed it or allowed the option.
4. I use Spotify at home and looking to use in my car [just read up] through a lightening lead to the USB port in the centre arm rest from my
IPhone 5. Can I switch my phone to WIFI and pick up on the Buzzard SIM when using Spotify?
Can those using this configuration does it work given the current Jaguar connectivity quality levels?
I have just sent off the letter to the dealer re enhanced PDI, and added to the list, Front half shaft assembly and Climate control-temp issues
