  • How to have a smooth wireless casting experience with GV1?
  • It depends on the internet service bandwidth provided by the Wi-Fi router as well as how many competing wireless devices in the environment. If stuttering occurs during projection, please check if Wi-Fi is working properly or it is combusted. 

    GV1 has both 2.4G and 5G channels. We'd recommend switching both your home Wi-Fi router and GV1 to 5G channel for smoother connections.

  • Can it enable wireless projection in wifi-less environment?
  • Besides WLAN mode, it also offers 2 types of wireless projection: 

    1. Use Mobile as the Wifi Hotspot: Turn on Wi-fi Hotspot on your iPhone or Android phone, connect GV1 to it and start the wireless projection.  

    2. Use GV1 as the Wifi Hotspot: Turn the Wifi Hotspot on GV1 and connect your mobile to it and start the wireless projection. To note, your mobile won't be able to connect to the external network via your 4G cellular network and only can stream pictures or video stored in your mobile to GV1.
