  • What are you guys using your mobile broadband for?

    Hi All,

    I finally installed broadband in the car using the Sprint CDMA USB Dongle, it's a little pricey at $60 p/m for unlimited data but it really does complete the whole concept of bringing I.T. into the driving environment for me.

    So far I'm using mine for:

    - Weather
    - Real-time updates of my music folder from my media server at home via FTP
    - Orb streaming media from the home media server (1.3TB of movies, TV and music)
    - General web browsing
    - Traffic Cams

    Future plans
    - Google Earth + GPS

    Just wondered if there is other great stuff people have found useful for the car now they have their internet. I see people talking about traffic updates but not sure how where to implement that.

    Lilliput 7" touch, Opus 250w, 160gb, AMD3500+, 1gb ddr400, geforce 6500 pcie, SiRF Star 3, Wireless G, Sprint CDMA, Bluetooth, Creative iCam Pro, RR, iG 4, Digital FX 4.0

    Not exactly an answer to your question, but just an FYI. If you're not already locked into a contract you can get the same product (and better customer service) from Millenicom for $10 less per month and no contract. I'm using this at home for internet access because I'm in an area w/o DSL.
