I have the small jumbo spot from Robert. Was working great but yesterday I had to power  cycle it dozens of times to get the screen to show AND connect to my smartphone data/wifi hot spot.
Or it would drop out and then do this all over again.
Or it takes about 30 minutes (seems like) before it connects/display shows and connects.

Any ideas why??????????????

Recent travel to almost 3 hours non stop, it took 90 minutes before the screen showed up. Talked to somebody in Texas and it dropped off so I was talking to nobody.
I have given up trying to use this device, Even tried another SD card with pistar on it and same thing.
I have used this hotspot 2 or 3 times and handled it with kid gloves!

Any ideas out there??????????????

Resolved by downloading a fresh copy of pistar  3  &  4. Seems like all old copies of pistar images were somehow made bad.
Weird.
