Hotspot Sharing (from one iPad to another)



If you will be demoing Double at a conference, trade show, or other short-term event where Wifi access is limited, you may want to set up hotspot sharing. Note that this technique is only useful when you're in the same room as Double – it's not intended for normal remote driving. The technique will make the two devices access the internet via one iPad's LTE connection and will make it more likely that the video signal will connect peer-to-peer locally, thus using less cellular data.

**Prior to doing this, you may want to confirm with your carrier if you have hotspot enabled on your account**

1. With an iPad that has LTE, go to Settings > Cellular.



2. Next, go tap Personal Hotspot. This page will show that it has been enabled and it will also show your hotspot password. 



3. From here, you can use the second iPad/iPhone to connect. The hotspot network will have the chain symbol.



The signal strength when using hotspot sharing is highly dependent on the LTE carrier's infrastructure. Therefore, we don't recommend this for normal usage. This works only when you're in the same room as the Double. 

One other thing to note, is that when Bluetooth is enabled on both iPads, they will detect each other via iBeacon and sound will automatically be muted, eliminating echo/feedback.
