Another reason is connection reliability, the Cradlepoint router maintains the connection better than the Verizon software. A mobile environment is hard on wireless Internet connections, especially with my commute. I drive though a couple of dead-zone pockets, where there is no cell phone or data available.
The Cradlepoint router will automatically re-connect when coming in and out of dead-zones. It can also spoof the connection for a short time, say when my laptop is connected via a VPN tunnel. The VPN tunnel will not drop when I go through a dead zone, like it would if the card were directly in my computer, and I was using the Verizon software to manage the connection.
Another benefit is not having to install another piece of software on the CarPC, it just connects to the EVDO router like any other WiFi connection.
Plus, my carpc can seamlessly connect to my home WiFi router when I pull in the driveway, because it is higher up in the connection order.
If you use the Ethernet port, it overrides the WiFi connection for Internet access. When at home, I want the CarPC to use my Home Internet, for updates and such, so I don't go over the 5gb limit imposed by Verizon.
Yeah, it would be cool to automate the process within RoadRunner somehow, but unfortunately, I'm not that good
I'm testing out snyc on 2 machines at home. I guess it would be easier just for me to drag and drop in windows explorer if I want to sync music on my home wifi network.
I don't have Internet access in my car.
I really don't know what Advantages there would be for me to use sync. I just download music from themixingbowl - then edit the tags/add album art, then move it to my carpc.
I record Armstrong and Getty on my home computer using a program called Applian Replay A/V. It saves the recorded web streams in 30-minute increments.
When I start my commute at 7:00am, the show starts transferring to my CarPC from my home PC via the Live Sync. It takes about 10 minutes per 30-minute incremented file (about 13mb) to transfer over the Verizon EVDO.
So I can start listening to the show at 7:10, skipping commercials, etc. By the time the first file is complete, the second one is already downloaded.
The only pain in the butt factor is that Roadrunner does not automatically add the newly downloaded files. So as the files download, I have to go into Roadrunner and add them to the playlist.
When I go to lunch the remaining files download, and I listen to the rest of the show on my way home from work.
Nice and neat install. Question, where do you keep your jack with the stealth sub there?

Hi, I had a question, is that 800x600 resolution you are running? I prefer to run 640x480 on mine, it's a lot easier to navigate through windows with the touchkit.
Also, Roadrunner is a Front End like Centrafuse? Do you have a link to the website so I can check on it? Thanks.
