Wondering if anyone else has experienced this. The likely Culprit Sirius Guardian.
i received with my 2020 WK2 a 1GB trial for the WiFi hotspot. In less than a week the 1GB was depleted. I know it was not technically possible for me to have gone through that much data on my 10min round trip drive to and from work in less than 7 days.

has anyone else experienced this also? It’s my understanding that the UConnect is supposed to operate independently of any separate data plan the vehicle owner purchases.
Thoughts? Experience?

regards
DC

Sirius has nothing to do with your wifi and the only thing that does, would be you connecting your phone to it, also 1 GB is not that much.

This has nothing to do with “Sirius” it has to do with the “telematics” unit used by Guardian UConnect.

Guardian is a Sirius product that replaced the Uconnect Access application. Sirius likely gave FCA a better deal than what FCA coukd do with Uconnect Access back in 2017.

Call Uconnect and ask, but I'm positive anything sirius doesn't use your Wifi because I had it on a vehicle and didn't have Wifi.

WIRELESS CONNECTIVITY
An available 4G Wi-Fi Hotspot( Disclosure17) lets your passengers stream, browse, share and more from the open road on up to eight devices. A 3-month trial (including 1 GB of data) is available on most new vehicles.

Enjoy an in-vehicle Wi-Fi Hotspot. Learn more about our unlimited data offer starting at $20/month. After 22 GB of data per line is used within one month, you may experience slower speeds.


A 1GB data plan will allow you to browse the internet for around 12 hours, to stream 200 songs or to watch 2 hours of standard-definition video. Nowadays, the key difference between mobile phone price plans is how many gigabytes of data it comes with.
