    So what do you use your net connection for?

    This is an area i think needs a lot more attention.

    Not a lot of people have full time internet access in there car, but for those that do there really isnt a whole lot of support from the frontends, skins etc to leverage this feature.

    So in my quest to utilize my in car connection to its fullest, im asking you what do you use your net connection for in the car, and what do you want to use it for that currently you dont know how to in a touchscreen friendly way?

    currently im working on a SE version of my skin that has a lot of online only features like movie times, video chat, online radio etc.

    Just want to hear what everyone else is doing etc.


    Thanks.

    1. Receiving traffic information. For want of working TMC system here in Moscow, we are using a navi system (in beta testing currently) which receives traffic info over the internet.
    2. Listening to internet radio (only possible over WiFi while parked outside some shopping malls where my wife does the shopping
    3. Downloading drivers and stuff.
    4. Making google searches (like where the hell is hospital #19?)

    Gas price finder, weather, traffic, internet radio, and listening to police scanner feeds, though usually not all at the same time.
