How can I control my smartphone/tablet updates from automatically consuming my Ubigi data plan?

Once you have connected your device to the Wi-Fi Hotspot by entering the password, your device will then automatically connect the next time you enter your vehicle. As this data source is seen as Wi-Fi, your device can run automatic updates without any notice and consume your Ubigi data plan.

If you want to avoid such unwanted/uncontrolled data usage, then we recommend that you disable the automatic mode of these updates in your device’s settings option when you connect to the Ubigi Wi-Fi network onboard.

To do this you need to enter to the SETTINGS option on your smartphone or tablet:

On Android system:
1- Open Google Play store
2- Open the icon on the top left part of the screen
3- Open Settings
4- Open Auto-update apps
5- Select Do not auto-update apps to disable automatic updates

On iOS system:
1- Open Settings
2- Open iTunes & App Store
3- On Automatic Downloads section, turn off the toggle next to Updates to disable automatic updates.

If you do not use the Wi-Fi Hotspot feature of your vehicle and want to benefit only from the infotainment feature, you simply can deactivate the Wi-Fi Hotspot feature (refer to How to turn off the Wi-Fi hotspot in my Alfa Romeo Giulia 2020 / Alfa Romeo Stelvio 2020?)
