 +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. By tapping on a hotspot location on the list, users can reach a picture of the location along with the option to receive GPS directions. ​

 +The steps below describe the general process of how the hotspot finder works, while illustrating features and functions. ​
