    Guys its not the best way but there is no other way

    My X is not connecting all the time, and if it did it does not stay connected

    i have a portable hotspot with 4g LTE that i keep in the car all times and my phone test connection gives me 100+ mbs

    tried to reset and forget network
    tried to change to other hotspot devices

    I thought I've read about folks switching out the sim card. I think it's a bit burried behind the touch screen though. Might be an option.

    Found it. It's an old thread about the S but might help you out.

    Where is the SIM card located?

    The bigger worry would be monthly data caps, nobody has yet said how much data the car pulls on a monthly basis, but I'd be worried it would overwhelm your data cap on your hotspot fairly quickly, especially if it decides to download firmware and/or map updates.

    This article cites 7Gb per month.

    It dates from october 2014, and a few informations in it seems to be wrong, so take it with a pot of salt. :)
