BT and WIFI tether to iphone

Postby Baronvlad » Thu Jan 10, 2019 12:27 am

I currently have the pumkin unit connected via bluetooth to my iphone, for voice calls this works great. However i wish to also use the data connection from my iphone for internet access and for navigation, waze, internet etc. The pumkin unit connects ok to my home wifi easily hower seems to have major problems connecting to my iphone hotspot to gain wifi. I have done this preciously but its not easy or relaible, it doesnt seem workable. The iphone hotspot will use bluetooth wifi or usb.

What is the easiest way to get both mobile voice support and internet/mobile data on the head unit using my iphone ?

sorry that currently the unit doesn't support get internet via BT connection from phone .
About the wifi hospot from iphone , you can contact the pumpkin customer service or write to support@autopumpkin.com to get help. I suggest you tell them your order number or ebay id so that they can confirm your unit .And also the model and system version of your iphone .

The Verizon iPhone offers WiFi tethering with the hot spot feature directly from the iPhone. To use this feature you must be subscribed to the $20 tethering package from Verizon. If you jailbreak your iPhone and download the My WiFi app then Verizon will have no way of knowing that you are tethering and assume that all the data is coming from the phone itself.
