When getting into the car the adroid head unit can not join an iphone's hotspot without intervention. Apple's hotspot stop being discoverable 90 seconds after being turned on. You have to go into control center on the iphone and push a button to make it discoverable for another 90 seconds each time you get into the car.

Apple macbooks are using Apple's instant hotspot that see the iphone hotspot all the time even when other devices can not. Does anyone know of software that can be run on the android to see the iphone's hotspot all the time?

Hence, you would be able to get into the car and leave the iphone in your pocket and it would instantly connect to the iphone's hotspot.
