 +======Hotspot Finder======
  
 +
 +Open Mobile includes a hotspot finder that enables users to locate iPass Wi-Fi hotspots anywhere in the world. Users can enter a location (address, city, zip code, or airport code) in the search box or use the list of nearby hotspots. Users should tap on a specific hotspot location on the list to reach a picture of the location along with the option to call the location or receive GPS directions.
 +
 +The steps below describe the general process of how the hotspot finder works, while illustrating features and functions.
 +
 +<note tip>A custom hotspot finder can be configured for profiles in the Open Mobile Portal.</note>
 +----
 +
 +**1. Tap the Hotspot Finder button ({{:hotspot_finder_button.png?30}}) on the main screen**.

 +**2. Search for hotspots**.
 +
 +{{  :hotspot_finder_main.png?350  }}
 +
 +A list of nearby hotspots is available to users as soon as they tap on the **Hotspot Finder** button. Automatically, the nearest and most convenient hotspots are displayed. However, users can search for specific hotspots by:
 +
 +  * address
 +  * city
 +  * zip code
 +  * airport code

 + **3. Filter hotspots.**
 +
 +{{ :android_hotspot_finder_filter.png?350  }} 
 +
 +Tapping on the filters button ({{:android_filter_icon.png?30}}) allows users to filter their hotspot search by:
 + 
 +  * hotel 
 +  * restaurant 
 +  * airport 
 +  * distance
 +
 +
 +----
 +
 +**4. View hotspot details**.
 +
 +{{ :android_detailed_view.png?350  }}
 +
 +By tapping on a specific hotspot location from the list, the user can pull up detailed information about that location, like:
 +
 +  * name of the establishment
 +  * address 
 +  * GPS directions (to the location)
 +  * phone number
 +  * hours
 +  * company website
 +
 +Users can use the **Report Hotspot** button  ({{:reportproblem.png?50}}) to notify iPass of any problem they encounter with a hotspot. Please see the **[[:android_report_hotspot|Report Hotspot]]** help page for more information.
 +
 +----
 +
 +**5. View a map**.
 +
 +{{ :android_map_view.png?350  }}
 +
 +  * Tapping the map icon ({{:android_map_icon.png?30}}) will pull up a map that displays several hotspot locations.
 +  * Tapping the location icon ({{:android_location_icon.png?30}}) will bring up a list of nearby hotspots.
