Is your vehicle equipped with a cellular internet option? If so, have you activated the subscription? If the vehicle is not equipped with cellular internet, then it can only connect to an external wifi source, such as your cell phone, mobile hotspot or home internet. You should refer to your car's manual on how to connect your iPhone or other device.
Using your current smartphone as an ad hoc wifi hotspot is the simplest way to obtain Wi-Fi in your automobile . With an OBD-II gadget or a specialised mobile hotspot, you can also access Wi-Fi in your vehicle. The most expensive and dependable option to connect Wi-Fi to your automobile is to install a permanent wireless modem and router.
thanks for your reply. I am not able to connect my iPhone to my Toyota Rav 4 wifi to do screen mirroring. Do you have any idea how to do that? The android phone can do the screen mirroring but only when the phone and the car is connected to the home wifi which makes no sense.

Does your car have CarPlay in the Nav System? If it does, and your iPhone has CarPlay, then you should be able to connect via BT.
The car that I have is brand new from Toyota showroom, nothing is broken. the problem is in Europe they block video watching videos while driving but some people can watch it through phone mirror app or some other way around .. that’s what I can’t do
Talk to Toyota. It may be blocked over here for the same reasons it's blocked in Europe. Probably a hack if some folks can do it here so you may have to Google around or check Toyota forums.
