  • The future of Mp3Car is...... "Mp3Car-Network"

    Before 10 years if someone was told to me that he have a computer into his car to hear music i thought he must be crazy. Now it is possible and without money. Now i am thinking that in a few years we will connect our GSM mobile phone to our mp3Car system to download mp3 files from Internet. Do you think i am crazy?

    I beleive that is is already technically possible, but I don't think it is practical as yet. As far as I can recall, the data rate for GSM phones is 9600 bps.
    Therefore it would take you an hour to download a 4.5 minute song encoded at 128000 bps. As well as being time consuming this method would also be rather expensive.

    I have no doubt that future mobile phone systems will have higher data rates and this will make your idea more practical. However the telephone companies will probably charge a premium price for higher data rates than for voice calls.

      If you get a setup like Megacar's <a href="http://www.megacar.com/photos/1889_48.jpg">communications system</a> you could download and upload songs at 150k...not to shabby for mobile...

              Here is a little slice: I work for a municipality (city government) in the IT department. Many of our neighboring towns are installing wireless access points throughout their communities so that the many community agencies such as their schools, town offices, police and fire departments have a line of communication. Im not talking about those pathetic little linksys routers or anything, Im talking about the big wireless repeaters on cell phone towers that have a 3 mile range. At this time it is a totally secured network, however many parts of their systems like the schools are allowing internet access, so anyone living around the schools has access.

              Here is another slice: Sprint PCS and many other services offer a true PCS solution for laptop users. This is a PMCMCIA card that has a small little antennae and with a subscription allows the user to turn their laptop into a roaming wireless system (same as cell phones). This allows anywhere from 400k to 2mb download speeds according to their documentation.
              Here is a link to one such product:

              So as you can see, we are pretty much already there, its just a matter of time before it is extremely cheep, and as commonplace as the home computer.

                It's interesting this thread pop-ed up this morning. On my way to work I've been thinking about using .Net's remoting object inside a server application and how to impliment it to make a smart server/client system that sends data efficiently to my carpc.

                The link above is just another interesting technology that will be available soon. Bringing us one step closer to being connected at all times.

                  Several cities are offering free access via hot spots all over the city at 802.11b bandwidths. I don't have examples right now (of course), but I know they exist.

                  When I was in Sante Fe, NM I helped set up a wireless ISP to serve some of the rural area south of the city. It is designed to serve homes, but it works perfectly well in a car on many streets.

                    I wish Cingular would get moving with UMTS. In the mean time, I'm really tempted to just buy a Windows Mobile PDA from Verizon (or Sprint) with EV-DO. It's pretty damn fast.

                    My GSM cell phone on Cingular is actually able to stream recorded and live TV as well as music from my Media Center PC with Orb, and that's only over GPRS. You can get unlimited EV-DO for $50/month, or even cheaper for limited use.

                      Grr.

                      Although most of this technology is so promosing. I live in a small city that is a technological black hole.

                      I get 3 clear AM/FM radio stations on my radio, XM satellite radio barly has signal in most locations, There is only one cell phone tower (because the city keeps rejecting attempts to build newer more moden ones) Cell phone signals are just terrible. I'd say 70% of the area is still dial-up. I'm just crying here for a technology break!

                      About 50 miles away there is a big city with all of this technology already in place, I was actually born there. It's frustrating to know that just 50miles away there is technology freedom!

                        LOL i got you beat. Where I lived in Massachusetts, there was AND STILL IS NO CABLE!!!

                        You got DirectTV or whatnot, and thats it.

                        And thats very recent, most people have an antenna!

                        No cell phone towers within town, so no signals work.

                        Basically its the woods.
