This Wireless hotspot is maddening

I generally love the interface on the 991.2, but Iíll be damned if I can get Amazon Music to Work when paired with the WiFi- my phone says Iím linked to WiFi just fine, and I have the apps showing on PCM...weather, news, etc. but Amazon Music is a no go. And the WiFi doesnít allow me to get to sites on my phone. I donít get it. Itís like the WiFi actually slows down the whole operation. Ugh

AND - I get the Apps to show up when paired with WiFi, Google Earth, News, BUT Apple Music with Apple CarPlay DOESN'T work when paired to WiFi. What's the damn point of having a WiFi hotspot if the music won't play? Ugh. Terrible.

Lesson learned: to actually use the WiFi to stream other data besides Connect services, you have to go to att.com/Porsche to activate the 3-month trial of 3 GB of data. That explains it!

Sounds like you’ve got it.

I’ve owned three cars with a WiFi hotspot. I haven’t activated it in any of them. I guess I don’t see the point. If I had had kids and they were frequently in the car with multiple devices, then maybe I could see it. For the 911, it’s mostly me driving alone or me with my wife. I see no need for a hotspot.

I use Bluetooth to stream it off my phone...Amazon Music, Google Music and Spotify. Don't know why you'd even thing of doing it any other way...forget the radio apps...useless! And the audio quality is outstanding too!

Works now! The advantage would be in areas where you don't get good cell reception, or if you have a phone data plan that might be exceeded.
