Hi all, just making my first post to help all that are not so satisfied with the range of the WiFi compared to 4G :)

First of all, this is something that can be achieved in different ways, this is just my way of solving it :-O

List of hardware/software:
1: Android spare phone for the car (an iPhone won't work with TeamViewer, see below)
2: USB Charge cable for the phone (that will be inside the car all the time)
3: Mitsubishi App on the phone (use the one appropriate for your car) https://play.google.com/store/search?q=phev
4: Speedify (this will split the traffic so that even when connected to the WiFi of the car, the 4G connection will work) https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.speedify.speedifyandroid
5: TeamViewer Host (This is installed in the car phone and will allow remote connection of the phone in the car, if 4G is present) https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.teamviewer.host.market
6: TeamViewer (for your ordinary cellphone, can be iPhone or a laptop as well!) https://www.teamviewer.com/

First, for a simple use without a spare phone, Speedify can be installed to solve the "no-internet" problem when connected to the WiFi of the car.

So, quickguide here:

Use a spare Android phone without too much installed to avoid heavy drain of the battery, and install 3, 4 and 5
This should be a quite simple process, but do read the instructions :)
Install TeamViewer on your ordinary phone and try to connect to the Android phone before using it in the car, and then activate Speedify, repeat, and the install it in the car (with a Powerbank as well if needed)

Good luck, and please ask questions and I will update this guide if needed. Cheers!

Frankly that's got me absolutely confused!!

I think a better option is to forget the app altogether and not have the stress of trying to get it to work. :lol:

That may be the best option for you, Tipper, but I am pretty sure others will value this spontaneous contribution by our new member ;) .

BTW: Personally I use a somewhat different solution involving Tasker and profiles for responding to missed calls. Doesn't introduce communication costs but is limited to starting pre-heating.

Can you share some more info on the Tasker method? I use Tasker to automate a couple of things on my phone, didn't occur to me it might be possible to use it to communicate with the car.

It can't communicate with the car. But it can:
- enable WiFi
- start the app
- click on specific screen positions once or twice to control the app
- close the app
- disable WiFi

All of that in response to a missed phone call

I can now confirm that the solution actually works. Thanks!

I too am having problems in connecting my PHEV using an i-phone (6). Mitsubishi tech support were not useful even when I compared the PHEV with a Nissan leaf where communication is quite easy. the Tasker solution looks promising but we are all Apple in this household. Anyone have any ideas as to how we can eg turn on the heating on a cold morning without having to brave the cold walk down the drive?
