Phone tethering to car

Hi, I have a virgin mobile sim as part of the Oomph media package.

My toyota car media system has the facility for connecting to WiFi mobile using hotspots/ tethering. I have followed the instructions to do this but with no success.
I have set the phone to mobile hotspots and switched on data use as outlined in the manual, and in car settings I have switched on WiFi. It automatically searches but does not find the phone only nearby neighbour's routers.
There is also a manual option and this is where I'm getting lost.
It asks for network name and password.  What would these be for the phone?

Re: Phone tethering to car

To tether the phone you need to set it up as a WiFi hotspot. The name and password will be what you set at the time.
