Tethering an iPad to an iPhone OK, so this might be a little "Tablet 101" for most guys, but I didn't understand (until today) how to get cellular data service on my iPad Mini 4. I've been using it completely offline. Making the iPad data-capable, though, lets me use Google Maps for traffic info, routing and to search for stuff, and I've got other apps too that can do a lot more when I'm within range of a cell phone tower. When I'm riding out in the boonies where there's no service, there's no traffic and no towns either, so it doesn't matter. But when I get into a populated area, it's nice to have data. To do this, go into the iPhone and the iPad Bluetooth settings and pair them. Then on the iPhone turn on Personal Hotspot. That's it. My iPhone has an unlimited data plan so I'm cool. I went out and tried it today and it worked great. I now have my iPad giving me traffic info and it didn't cost me anything! I suppose I'll have a bunch of you young guys saying "You didn't know that?" in a tone of voice that really means "What an idiot." But there's gotta be some old fossils out there like me who will appreciate this post (hit the Like button if that's you.) Anybody have any hints or suggestions? Should I turn off the HotSpot when I'm not using it?
