Connect to Internet
There are two ways of connecting to the Internet with Sensus Connected Touch:
Wi-Fi connection from mobile phone
Make sure that your phone supports tethering and that this function is activated. This function is called “tethering” on the iPhone and “personal hotspot” in Android. Follow the instructions on the Sensus Connected Touch screen or in the manual at http://www.parrot.com/sensus-connected-touch under 'Connect to Internet'.
Connection via a 3G/4G dongle
A portable modem (dongle) connected via a USB port gives you a more stable connection to the Internet. If you are connected via a dongle, you can create a Wi-Fi network in the car using of Sensus Connected Touch. This will then allow several people to use the Internet. For information on 3G/4G dongles, see http://www.parrot.com/sensus-connected-touch.
Compatible mobile phones
Mobile phones with functionality allowing them to share Wi-Fi are supported by the system (iPhone, Android, Blackberry and Windows phones).
Sensus Connected Touch is not connected to the safety functions in the car and does not affect any safety systems if the system is subjected to a virus attack.
3G/4G coverage not available
If you are in a place where there is no 3G/4G coverage, the connection is moved to the GSM network instead. This may affect functionality.
The Internet connection is interrupted or dropped
If the Internet connection is temporarily disrupted, Sensus Connected Touch will buffer and music apps playing online will continue to work. If the Internet connection is disrupted for any length of time, you will lose your connection.
You can continue to play music via an SD card or via USB even if the connection is lost. That said, weather information will not be updated and you will not be able to receive traffic information, e-mail or new map data or use Asteroid Market.
