Mileage Ace works great with iPhone hotspots – but there is one common point of frustration that actually has nothing to do with the Mileage Ace: iPhone’s say the hotspot is on when it actually is not.
Making the hotspot actually turn on
Here’s the most foolproof way to turn it on:
- Turn your Personal Hotspot OFF
- Leave Wifi ON
- Turn your phone completely off (shut it down)
- Turn the phone back on
- Turn Personal Hostpot ON
- Do not navigate away from the personal hotspot page
- Now refresh the networks on your device – it should find the hotspot and you can add it then test the connection to it.
Your phone will show a connection when it works
When your mileage tracker connects to the phone, it will show one connection in a small blue window at the top of the screen.
If your phone isn’t showing a connection, your hotspot is probably not on and you’ll need to run the above steps to get it to work.
