wouldn't the Verizon MiFi (or whatever it is called) be a better/cheaper solution?
There was a couple with his and hers (blue and red) Ford Probes in town years ago. The real question is why not wait for Camaros?
Unless you plan on using that at home (replacing home wifi and internet) and using it for on the go...due to its mobility..I just don't see paying for another service plan for mobile internet.
I use the internet through my HTC Vogue (xv6900) without paying any 'tethering' charge and I can stream internet music (last.fm/shoutcast) flawlessly just the same. I also don't need any special driver or software..it's all plug and play. Been doing it for over 2 years with no problems.
I was just comparing the MiFi to the dealer-installed router in the first post. There are even better alternatives if you already have certain hardware.
am i missing something here? This seems to be just a WiFI router... where its the uplink to the actually network? or are they linking to a wireless network thats in the area? if thats the case, save yourself some cash and get an inverter and a cheap wifi router and set it up in your car.
Well, it's a WiFi router PLUS a cellular data connection. It's that second part that allows you to go mobile without losing the signal.
From what I understand ... the Autonet router has special techonology that manages the data and the tower connections for you .. allowing you to stay connected and not lose connection while transferring large files... streaming music etc.
The MiFi product is not meant to be used while in motion...

Strange that you say its not meant to be used while in motion. I mean we use our cell phones while in motion walking around, on the bus or if you have bluetooth handfree in the car...same thing due to the data connection. If I can stream internet music flawlessly through my phone to my EEEPC while in the car then it should work the same.
