Hi SpinnerUK

I've update the post with some pictures that show the WiFi fitted in the boot

WiFi module is really good bit of a pain to set up as I have an EE SIM card but the EE APN details didn't work I had to use T-Mobile details in the end (as its the same network) you have to use a laptop to configure it first of all using the inbuilt network card. This allows you toname the wireless and set up a password then its all good to go.

Its not mentioned on the Peugeot site or any where in the documentation there is a dongle that you can remove from the WiFi box that you place the SIM into this can then be plugged into a laptop to have Internet Access when not in the car. Its really handy and all installation files are built in to the dongle so there's nothing to loose works with Windows and Macs too




I hope this is of some help

Paul

Is the WiFi an official Peugeot accessory as I have been unable to find it on the Peugeot web site?

Park Assist is amazing! While recently trying to find somewhere to park in the side streets of Bristol, I let it have a go in very tight space that I didn't even think it would accept. 4 manouveres and we were in.

I got out the car, looked, scratched my head and thought how on earth has that just happened! There's is no way in a month of Sundays that I would have even thought about manually parking there let alone actually doing it. The 'leaving parking space' was handy too! Oddly it did it in less manouveres.

Very clever technology and glad I paid for it. With the added bonues of the front sensors too of course.

I believe it's official as I was going to get it when I ordered as it's on their website configurator thingy.

Something like £145 if I remember.

Whoa! How Much?!

So aside from being in the wrong place for optimum connection to the 3G network, what's the difference between having one of these and a portable wi-fi hotspot for less than £30?

Hi Burty

Where I live i've never had an issue with signal and if needed you can add an external aerial.

When it comes to using a hotspot that's your choice, mine is set up and ready to go whoever in the family uses the car I just thought it would be an easier option than having a hotspot. But like I said its up to choice.

Nimbus grey looking lovely - great car. I wanted Nimbus grey, but when I found an ex-demo in Dakota Brown with £4k off the list price and only 700 miles on the clock, I sacrificed my colour choice to bag a bargain.

Not sure I'd ever fork out for the in-car wifi though. I have a '3' mifi device, which was free on contract and I pay £11 per month for 15gb of data each month - something portable suits far better and can be used in the car. Can't see the sense in forking out for an in-car unit really.

How did you wire the LED for under the front seats (lighting the rear footwell) in to the car? Where does it go?
