The Travel Link weather in my 2020 doesn't use cellular for the weather information. I never enabled my free 3-month cellular connection. If I need a fast connection for anything I turn on my 5G phone's hotspot.

And it shows up on your truck screen?

Yes. It is similar to the service they offer boaters. So do all the other Travel Link items like movies at local theaters, fuel prices sports scores etc. I seldom use any of it though.

Would be great to get Verizon in these trucks... I too, paid for the "unlimited" annual ATT plan and the service sucks. We get an hour into our trip and the service stops working for the kids.

Can you just stream from your phone? How much data does Verison give you for Hotspot? My T-Mobile is 10GB hotspot before throttling. It is tracked differently than my normal service which is unlimited.

Ya know, I’m not trying to use my truck as a Hotspot, I’m trying to connect my truck to my IPhone Hotspot. That’s what I’m asking….Things are so much clearer now…. :)

Definitely and thats what we turn to when the truck's wifi takes a crap.
