Perfect, thanks!

I posted this in another thread about scanners but I think this is a good place for it as well.

Follow these steps so that you'll still be able to use Pandora, Waze, and other Internet-based apps while using the WiFi scanner. If you don't, the iPhone will try to access the Internet via WiFi instead of cellular.

Plug the unit in and turn the key on. You don't need to start the engine.
If the unit is not on (lights should be lit), turn it on via the power button.

In iPhone Settings, go to Wifi and select the "V-link" WiFi network (if using the VGate scanner, or chose the proper network for your scanner).

Select "Static" and enter this info:

IP Address: 192.168.0.11
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Router: 192.168.0.10

This will tell the iPhone not to try to get to the Internet via the V-Link network.

Fantastic information that I would not have otherwise known. Thank you sir!
