A friends dad just got one of these for his rig, basically it's a mobile internet router providing wifi. www.autonetmobile.com
It gets great service in the areas we were at, and range was about 150ft. When he parked his car in the garage, it made the house a hotspot for wifi. Anybody know any vendors on this forum that sell this type of stuff? We tried the u\iconnect from chrysler, and it was spotty as far as service.
Good info Sonic. Cnet did a review of one installed in a Caddy, not the best when traveling. We tried it while stationary, and it worked good for laptops, and iphone, but interested to see how many gigs we burnt up with 3-4 users on it.
It would probably be fine for mobile browsing, but you stream anything and you will most likely go over your limit.
At home in TN they cant get broadband, so my parents got the mifi from verizon.....
they hated it. It was fast with one user, but with two it was considerably slower. And they had to reall ymonitor their usage to keep it under 1 gb/month
1 gb a month is about 35 MB per day.....thats about 9 songs streamed per day LOL
