 +======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. By tapping on a hotspot location on the list, users can reach a picture of the hotspot 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. 
 +
 +
 +
 +----
 +
 +**1. Tap or click FIND HOTSPOTS on the main screen.** 
 +
 +{{  :hotspot_button.png?100  }}

 +The hotspot finder feature is available by tapping or clicking on the **FIND HOTSPOTS** button on the Open Mobile main screen. The hotspot feature is also available by swiping from right to left on the same screen.

 +
 +Users can use the search fields to look for specific hotspots by:
 +
 +  * address

 +
 +Additionally, tapping or clicking on one of the filter buttons (located under the search fields) allows users to filter their hotspot search by distance, restaurant, hotel, or airport.
 +
 +----
 +
 +**3. View hotspot details.**
 +
 +By selecting a specific hotspot location, the user can pull up detailed information about that location, like:

 +  * address 
 +  * GPS directions 
 +  * phone number (if available)

 +  * company website (if available)
 +
 +
 +In addition, users can use the **Report Hotspot** button ({{:touch_report_button.png?80}})  to notify iPass of any problem they encounter with a hotspot. Please see the [[:windows_touch_report_hotspot|Report Hotspot]] help page for more information.

 +**4. View a map.**
 +
 +The hotspot feature offers a map view of nearby hotspots, which can be adjusted to Road, Aerial, and Bird’s eye view. 
 +{{  ::touch_map_view.png?400  }} 
 +  * **Show Pins**: Tapping or clicking on the **Show Pins** icon ({{:show_pins.png?25}}) will pull up or hide blue pins that illustrate where iPass hotspots are located.
