    Delphi Connect 4G hotspot

    "Connected Devices" on shared Verizon plans are $5 per month.

    I'm wondering if one of the Delphi Connect devices could be "fooled" into running outside of a vehicle and used as a normal hotspot (via emulating vehicle power on a female ODBII connnector)? On the older Share Everything plan, this would be a savings of $15 per month over a normal mobile hotspot.

    I believe the Delphi device has an additional $5 per month charge to Delphi for the mobile vehicle diagnostics/unlocked/etc. I'm not sure if that account needs to be active for the hotspot functionality to work or not.

    Has anyone tried this?

    Looking at the ODBII pinout, it appears there's only ground & battery power pins. Everything else appears to be connections to various buses in the car. I was assuming there was a switched power lead, such as what car radios use for power (while using the battery line to maintain the clock/settings).

    So I'm assuming this thing watches one of the vehicle buses to know when the engine is running to power up the wifi.

    Anyone know if this device has a removable sim card? I'm assuming no, as I haven't seen any mention of it in the documentation regarding activation of the unit.
