  • How to have a smooth wireless streaming experience with GV30?
  • It depends on the Internet bandwidth provided by the Wi-Fi router as well as how many competing wireless devices there are in the environment. If stuttering occurs during projection, please check whether the Wi-Fi is working properly or if it is congested.

    GV30 has both 2.4G and 5G channels. We'd recommend switching both your home’s Wi-Fi router and GV30 to the 5G channel for a smoother connection.

    2. Use GV30 as the Wi-Fi hotspot: Turn on the Wi-Fi Hotspot on GV30, connect your mobile to it and start the wireless projection. Please note that your mobile won't be able to connect to an external network via your 4G network and only pictures or videos stored in your mobile can be streamed to GV30.
