Using A BOOST SIM IN AN UNLOCKED NETGEAR NIGHTHAWK m1

I have an unlocked Netgear Nighthawk M1 (MR1100 Mobile Router) and bought a Boost $100 60Gb SIM, activated it and inserted it into the device. After I fired it up I tested it through WIFI on several diffent devices (phone, desktop and tablet). All sweet!

 

I want to check the data use occasionally so I know when to top it up but when you use the Boost app on a connected device it asks you to turn off the WIFI and access the SIM through a "device" directly, which you can not do on a router. Is there another way of checking the balance from a connected device?

 

I did think of removing the SIM occasionally and putting it into a phone but this will be a pain as none of my devices take the Micro SIM.
