A question on activating the 3 sim card.
Can this be done in car? or does it have to be done beforehand in a phone?

Thanks

FP
Just stick it in the sim slot. From memory I thìnk all you have to do then is switch on the mobile data toggle in the connectivity menu in ICTP. There may have been an additional action in that menu, but it was all in the car. No preregistration required.

You only need to put it in a phone if you want to register online to access your account and see how much data you have left (needs to send u texts to activate your acct). If you're not bothered about that, then plug and play!!!

If you don't do that, how do you know when you're running out of data?!

You don't, but based on the average usage your 12 mths will run out before your data!

The car tells you your total useage so far so with some basic maths you can work out how long you have left :-)

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'?
