How do I use the Weather and Gas Price Features on a Rand McNally?
In order to utilize the functions of the weather
and gas price features of the Rand McNally 7730 GPS**, you must be connected to
WiFi; therefore, you must have a WiFi connection available in your RV or
vehicle. This could be achieved through a MiFi card or by turning your cell
phone into a mobile hotspot.
Once you have selected
which WiFi you will be using, go to Preferences on your Rand
McNally. In the bottom right you'll see the WiFi button (or tap on the WiFi
icon in the bottom right of the map). Press Enable WiFi (if
it's not enabled already) and the system will look for the available WiFi
Select the name of the WiFi signal you will
be using and then enter the password (MiFi passwords can be found on the back
of the MiFi card and cell phone hotspot passwords can be found on your phone).
Remember that passwords are case sensitive.
Be aware that you may
need to Enable WiFi each time you turn on the unit. You can
tell that you are connected because there is a little blue antenna on the left
of the WiFi name that you are connected to.
To check your connection, go to the Main Menu then Go
to Map and click on the weather circle on the bottom right just above
the heading indicator. If you're connected, it will bring up the weather
and allow you to select various options (see the weather overlay below).
