    Oh my bad, I thought this was for people to sell their 1.0s. Sorry i read it wrong. If i had a 1.0 and it worked fine i would be keeping it. How bad do you need the gps to work flawless? There is already a work around for the problem where you download two different bluetooth gps programs (one for the phone other one for the dongle) and both devices just communicate to each other.

    Yes but your gonna be driving most of the time so it will need your phones hotspot and data. This kinda sucks (to me) but as in life “its always something”, it is what it is i guess.

    Yea figured i was right, just was hoping i wasnt bc its a letdown knowing this, for me. Meh, maybe ill look into how much my cell phone carrier wants to charge for more data. thanks for the reply.

    If i find out the answer, ill post back

    EDIT: Just got confirmation on another thread indeed it does use your cellphones wifi hotspot data(which isnt very much unless you pay for more). Was hoping this wasnt the case, a borderline deal breaker for me. Its always something damnit, lol.

    Hey guys sorry to hijack thread but i figured i would ask since its active and you all currently own the dongle. My only question is this: Since it requires being hooked up to your phones wifi-hotspot this means it takes up your hotspot data, correct? My cell phone (as well as most others) currently receives a 5GB data cap every month, and once this runs out speeds get reduced to 2G, which would then make the dongle unusable to play videos,netflix or anything else that requires wifi. Am i wrong in thinking this?

    Now maybe someone would answer my question…

    Will these be using my cell phones Wifi Hotspot Data while using this thing? I see it has to hook up to your Wifi Hotspot to be able to use it for netflix, ytube, gaming, etc. Problem is most cell phone plans give you a limited amount of hotspot data (5GB for me) before the speeds slow down to 2G which then it becomes unusable basically. So whats the rub here.

    I figured out how to get the links to work. dont use www.

    ETA PRIME video showing cpu specs 8:25 min mark – youtube.com/watch?v=5ZWwnn14qA8
    Reddit thread about P22 – reddit.com/r/EmulationOnAndroid/comments/g033pv/anyone_using_a_helio_p22/
    Ytube video of p22 running emulators – youtube.com/watch?v=M-JQh8oUQZk
    Site comparing P22 to Snapdragon 625 – nanoreview.net/en/soc-compare/qualcomm-snapdragon-625-vs-mediatek-helio-p22

    So i did a little homework for you because im bored. Here it goes:

    Upon the latest ytube video from “ETA PRIME” i see the processor being used is called a “MediaTek Helio P22”. Search for his video on ytube <“ETA PRIME CarDongle”> and Skip to the 8:25 mark for the specs.

    After knowing the cpu now we can do some google foo to which i found some good information off a Reddit article titled “Anyone using a helio p22?” in the r/EmulationOnAndroid community section. Search for that as well, you’ll notice the very first reply is a link to a ytube video where supposedly he is running all different kinds of emulator systems/games of a p22. youtube.com/watch?v=M-JQh8oUQZk

    Lastly it seems the MediaTek Helio P22 is comparable to a Snapdragon 625 with the Snapdragon beating it out by very little. You can see this by going to nanoreview.net/en/soc-compare and typing in both chips then viewing the compared results yourself.

    For some reason this forum doesnt let me post the full links in these messages. Even when i try to do through the “Link” option tab it still doesnt post….

    annnnnnd youuurr welcome ;-P
