Re: Sat Nav Tethering 02 Classic

APN type was 'not set'. I've changed that to the * so will check if that works and let you know.

Re: Sat Nav Tethering 02 Classic

Did you reboot the phone first?

Re: Sat Nav Tethering 02 Classic

Yeah I've rebooted both the phone and sat nav a few times. Also tried deleting and repairing the phone again. Still the same result, nothing over data but connects in seconds with WiFi.

Re: Sat Nav Tethering 02 Classic

Can you try with a different phone to see if the issue is with phone or nav unit?

Re: Sat Nav Tethering 02 Classic

I don't have another phone myself but will see if I can borrow one for this during the week.

Thanks for your help with this so far.

No worries, happy to try Smiley Wink
Grab a mate and connect their phone, then try swapping sims between phones if theirs works so we can narrow it down to the exact cause.

Re: Sat Nav Tethering 02 Classic

Another thought.....
Turn on your hotspot and connect your laptop to it briefly to see if tethering is working.

Re: Sat Nav Tethering 02 Classic

No luck so far.  I don't have any local mates so it could be next week before I can try another phone.

 

However I just tried using the laptop through the phones hotspot, it connects ok but no internet access once its connected.  So it looks like it's the phone rather than the sat nav at least.
