What's In The Kit & How To Install It
Give your Vhedia Head Unit the Internet
Our 4G LTE USB Head Unit Dongle is designed to enable an internet connection while maintaining plan flexibility and, of course, your choice of provider. Easy to install, it just plugs into one of the USB ports coming out of your Vhedia Head Unit and gives it direct access to the internet.
While not connected on WiFi, it is basically like you have a SIM card in your head unit and works just like your phone on data. And, there is no more need to hotspot your phone to the head unit to allow it access to the internet! You can now use wireless Apple CarPlay or Android Auto and the internet at the same time.
Easy To Install – Just Plugs into the USB port of your Vhedia Head Unit
Wide Band Coverage – It’s compatible with all popular Australian networks. If you’re going to use prepaid, we recommend Boost because they have great data deals and use Telstra’s entire network. If you already have a plan, you can simply add a sim to it (usually for around $5 per month) and pull data from your current plan’s data pool.
Why Do You Need Internet and how does it help? As our Head Units run the Android operating system, you can download apps onto them. And with this 4G Dongle plugged in, you will no longer need to hotspot your phone to the head unit to update/use these apps.
What providers will this work with?
It will work with all Popular Australian Networks like:
- Aldi Mobile
- Woolworths Mobile
- Coles Mobile
- Other Networks
What speed does it run at?

How do I install it?
Simply plug it into your Vhedia Head Unit’s USB port and it will connect automatically! That simple! If you are running an older firmware you may need to update your firmware first. So if you plug it in and nothing happens time to upgrade.
Will it work with any Vhedia Head Unit?
Can I run Wireless CarPlay or Android Auto at the same time?
With this dongle plugged in you will now be able to use both CarPlay/AndroidAuto at the same time without hiccups while still having that internet accessibility on the go!
Will it provide a hotspot for other devices? Or can I hotspot from the head unit?
It can provide a hotspot for other devices from the head unit itself by turning on the HotSpot into the head unit settings while the 4G LTE dongle is connected.
Why do I need this?
This tool is very handy especially if you want to have Apple CarPlay/AndroidAuto and want internet access at the same time. The 4G LTE dongle is also an excellent alternative for people who don’t want to use their phone as a hotspot device as it may drain their phone’s battery quickly, especially while camping.
