Does the car net live traffic feed info to the sat nav to find the quickest route or does it only show on the screen as a feed?

It will get live traffic updates thus resulting in the Sat Nav looking for alternative routes.

Hi Tony,
The most popular solution here seems to be Huawei E8372h-153. Make sure it is '- 153' version as it's compatible with UK 4G bands.

My Nav does not look for alternate routes, even with Car-Net connected, is there some settings I need to look into? Also, mine does not re-route, it struggles.

You have to go into the WLAN settings within the info system.

On a side note, can anyone confirm they have tethered to a rooted Android phone and has Car-Net working, specifically Android Pie running January security patch?

Ordered and fitted mine, thanks. Somehow already used 50mb, which seems a lot. Nothing else connected to it either.
You probably used that when you activated the SIM. Even with 300 miles of travelling and activation of the SIM I still have 196mb left.
Well thats it. In less than 300 miles and just a few days, my 200mb data run out 2 days ago. It wasn't used for anything else just the car. Any ideas why?

Make sure your phone or anything else is not using that hotspot. Mine has been used since 23 January and still has more than 100 megs left
