Issue Description

I was able to enable the "Free WiFi Connectivity", but I don't know when I am able to connect to one of the hot spots. It says it "automatically connects seamlessly" but as far as I can tell it has never happened.

The Republic Notification will say you are on a Republic Verified wifi network when it happens.

OK, I have driven past plenty of hot spots shown on the map, and have never received a notification yet.

Driven by?
You phone is not going to auto connect that fast and when you are moving that fast due to poor signal.
The only time i have this feature activate is after I walk into a store and have strong signal for at least a minute or 2. Then it engages the connection.

Thanks, I will try to pinpoint a building on the map and walk inside to see if it will work.

Give it a few minutes to connect. I’ve noticed it’s not instant when I’m connecting to a new hotspot. It definitely won’t work driving by :grinning:
