 +======Find Hotspots======
  
 +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.
 +
 +----
 +
 +**1.** Tap **Find Hotspots** on the main screen.

 +
 +{{ :ios_find_hotspots.png?250  }}

 +Users can have a richer hotspot finder experience by switching **On** the **Display maps and hotspot details** option.

 +
 +**4. View hotspot details**.
 +
 +{{ :ios_detailed_view.png?250  }}

 +
 +  * name of the establishment
 +  * address 
 +  * 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 [[:ios_report_hotspot| Report Hotspot]] help page for more information.
 +
 +
 +----
