I've got a BT Essentials Wifi Extender 300 (from Argos) that worked straight away with my 2015 GX4h. Was about £20 I think.

I had to set the SSID and passcode manually of course, but beyond that it just stays plugged into a socket inside my house near where I park the car. Now I can connect my iPhone to EXT-REMOTExxxxxx from much further away then open the app and it connects and works as normal. By 'as normal' I mean 4 times out of 5 it connects and works immediately, 1 time in 5 you have to click the refresh button before it will.

Do you have to go through the registration rigmarole (on-off 5 times) or is it just PnP?

You're not registering a new phone - just adding an extra network routing device in between. So the car doesn't know any different, and hence no need to re-register.

Great. I have an old one lying around since we're now on a mesh WiFi
