Not that i'm playing one upmanship or anything but....


I've ordered as one of the comments says works fine with three, even though the ad makes no mention of what Networks are supported.
couple of weeks for delivery though.
I've ordered this one.

Is it a case of insert SIM, plug into usb and connect? Or do I need to convert to laptop and update anything first?

Cheers.
This one worked first time with the three sim. No config. Plug it in. Find the SSID and type in the password (both printed on the side) and off you go
Spot on, cheers.

Hopefully the sim card will be here tomorrow.

Isn't there a USB port in the compartment under the front arm rest? I was thinking of placing my dongle in there

Nope.
Two under the aircon controls in the little phone cave :)
one behind the arm rest facing the rear passengers, by the 3rd zone air cone temp etc
I use mine in the boot with a 12v USB adaptor - out of the way and works perfectly

This is on a MY18 onward car by the way

Unfortunately not, one of my very few annoyances with the Tiguan.
I specced a 12 volt boot socket in my car and have my dongle there via an adapter.

This looks to be the same as the one listed for Amazon for £14, but under £12 on ebay and delivery in a week

Just used a similar set up, thanks to the forum, not sure how much use Car Net will be though!

Anyone got a view as to how cold it gets before removing their dongle overnight and bringing it in somewhere warmer? Or should it be ok to be left in continuously? I've carelessly disposed of the packaging for mine now so don't know the temperature constraints but imagine they're the same for most.
