That right there would be enough reason for me to not get it...but glad you're liking the unit.
I know what you mean.
Think of all the sales they will miss out on, just due to this one issues. I would think it would be an easy software fix, but they blame iPhone and state iPhones are notorious for this setting dropping off when not in use. Basically, the iPhone turns of wifi-hub when not being used, forcing you to turn it back on manually on your phone.
Might be a b*llshit excuse, but who knows.
