How to Connect the 4G LTE Wi-Fi Hotspot in Your Chevrolet


Today we are going to talk about OnStar’s 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot. I’m going to show you how to do it, it’s real easy to do. First thing, we are going to get your Wi-Fi hotspot password from OnStar. “Welcome to OnStar” Say “Wi-Fi Settings” “Please see the owners manual for your Wi-Fi Settings” At that point you go to the settings on your phone. I have an Apple, if you have a Droid you go to the settings too and go to your Wi-Fi access. You can see right here it says “Wi-Fi hotspot” All the GM vehicles will say this. Engage that and then it will ask you for the password I got to put in the password which is indicated up here in the display. OK, now I’m all connected! See now it’s connected to the car. At that point I can run up to 7 devices off my hotspot all at the same time. So if you have an iPad you can stream a movie… All of this while driving.

  1. There are several options… I believe there is s free trial. I do know if you're an AT&T customer you get a discount for the data usage. Even if you pay the for the data fee, the fee is competitive with Verizon, Sprint.. Etc.

  2. A car is like a faraday cage. So, it's like microwaving your brain while driving. And it can't be shut off. This fucking insanity has got to stop.

  3. Here is a real review, It will not handle 7 devices. What no will take about is the speed for this high speed 4G LTE hotspot. I own a 2017 GMC Sierra and sense day one I was only able to 1Mbps… 1 Have almost a years time going buy I tried it again. I bought the unlimited package for $20. It still ran at 1Mbps, that in not LTE speeds, that is 3G speeds. Having calling onstar connections and complaining I can now pull 10Mbps which is better but just barely reaching LTE speeds and AT&T is much faster than that in my area. So the question is who is slowing it down, onstar or AT&T? And I suggested onstar because I do not subscribe to any monthly plans other than the Wi-Fi. I wonder if I started subscribing to onstar service again would the speed increase to what it is supposed to be at. 🤔
