Use Discovery Mode to understand your Hotspot’s coverage without waiting for Proof-of-Coverage/Beacons, or setting a location!
Your Hotspot acts as a device and sends out radio packets for a short period of time, and any Hotspots that heard the packet will respond.
How can you use Discovery Mode?
- use it to compare antennas (is one better than the other?)
- use it to test indoor or outdoor set ups
- test if higher really is better (it is)
- which side of the house sees more Hotspots?
Run Discovery Mode up to 5 times per day per Hotspot.
Note: Discovery Mode will not work on syncing Hotspots, offline Hotspots, and may not work on Relayed Hotspots. Discovery Mode is free to use until further notice.
Try it out today - update to app version 3.2.0 and make sure your Hotspot is running firmware 2021.05.12.0.
