    My GMC is equipped with wifi/hotspot. I can connect my CarDongle directly to my vehicle to operate.

    Since I don’t have to connect my phone to operate, will there be any impact on operation/functionality? I am hoping to run it from the vehicle hotspot and not have to connect it to my phone. Is there any downside? Have y’all tested it in this capacity?

    Give it a try. It should work with any wifi signal, including GMC’s. I’ve connected it to multiple home wifi networks, including my phone hotspot, while testing the device in my car (while it was parked in my attached garage).

    Hopefully your GPS will work as it is supposed to when you do connect.

    I have tried to use it and Google Maps doesn’t work with my car’s Hotspot and I don’t know why. CarDongle has a GPS antenna and my hotspot can be used to locate my vehicle. Is there an update coming to resolve this?
