Just to update on my iOS phone taking forever to connect or requiring me to restart the hardware agent (disconnect USB cable).

So over the last few days what I've been doing is starting the hotspot BEFORE opening the car door. If your car is setup like mine then the cars power turns on as soon as you open the door. This makes sure the hotspot is waiting for the hardware agent and not the other way around.

By doing this it's connecting really fast to my hotspot now. Then I just have to wait a few seconds for the agent itself to connect to the car.

Also, if you're on one of the newer iOS versions the phone should automatically disable WiFi when you enable hotspot and vice versa.
