    I use my HTC HD2 for internet connection via ActiveSync. It works very well, but I read somewhere that wifi connection slow down due big latency. Use Android hot spot wifi connection?

    BTW if I could choose between Florida and Canada, I'm for Canada. Florida is too hot for me, but sometimes are temperatures in Toronto higher then here in Czech Republic. I don't understand it.

    in this order

    root via unrevoked.com

    install wireless tether from the marketplace or get the latest beta which does infrastructure wifi.

    Sit back and get a raise

    Okay. Android is REAL easy for sharing.

    When you plug in to USB, Android asks you what you want to do, such as Mass Storage or PC Internet. Choose the obvious and Bam, you're set. Uses your data plan (typically cheaper than tethering).

    This is seperate from the WiFi hotspot. Naturally Wifi is a bit slower, and 3G or HSPA is not like having a normal highspeed internet connection, but is mighty handy anyway.

    If I require internet while driving (not me, but passengers of course) then I would connect it via USB and pick PC INTERNET. If camping where they do not offer Wifi, then hotspot comes in handy.

    Oh, and I guess what they say about "the grass always seems greener on the other side" holds true. I do love Canada, and not that I have anything against U.S. but I too would not want to live in FLA full-time, just for a chunk of the winter. But a cheap place to stay to see Disney with my wife and our mildly challenged grandson is in my bucket list.

    Absolutely no valid technical reason whatsoever. Never bothered to try.

    I have been satisfied that I can setup Wifi hotspot, and give internet direct to carpc through USB.

    I suppose the one advantage is that the phone stays charged up while connected via USB, instead of draining doing the Bluetooth thing.

    Is there an advantage using Bluetooth vs. USB for sharing internet access?

    The only reason I'm planning on using bluetooth is because it is wireless and later on I plan on setting up my car to automatically unlock when it detects my phone and lock when it doesn't detect my phone (won't involve computer). Anyways I kinda like everything wireless.

    Downfalls that I can think of:
    Internet speeds might be faster then bluetooth speeds?
    Bluetooth drains battery faster
    Bluetooth doesn't charge phone

    Ahhh. Proximity detection is an interesting concept, and I think I've heard someone else mention something like. I'm going to have to toss that around the noodle a bit for future consideration. Can today's PCs be set to wake-on-bluetooth? Probably not. But Google's next Android promises some sort of proximity RFID capabilities. I bet there are some devices that would work with that. Even ignition interlock so even if someone else has a key, the car won't start. Hmmmm. The wheels are turning.

    Without solid evidence, I'm thinking USB internet would be faster than Bluetooth. Only because wireless is more prone to noise and so more packets would need re-transmitting wasting bandwidth. But like I say, I can't back that opinion at this time.

    RFID (including the tech google is rolling out) has a useful range of ~2-3"...its designed for places you would swipe a credit card and intentionally not further then the ~2-3" to prevent eavesdropping.

    yup quite a bit... until bluetooth 3.0 I wouldn't use it for anything more then 2G internet.


    Also saw some mention of cameras before....just wanted to throw in theres really no need for auto-mirroring...you can do it just as easily on the PC side and save a few $$

    Hmmm. Good point. Forgot about the distance thing.

    I thought about that. However, would I not need a capture card? USB cams (at least the ones I have had) kinda suck. Get a camera + USB capture and I think I might just start out with a $20 cheapy, at least for now. The biggest downside would be manually switching the monitor as I will not hook the camera to the backup lights. Which means the monitor won't auto-switch. I guess it depends on desires and budget. Then again, I would go the capture card route in the future if anyone in the rear zones wants to view the camera.

    Oh, now I am starting to sound wishy-washy again.

    Well I had ordered the 25 feet of 0 gauge wire and the camera add on, but guess what. They are both coming from New York which has delays on shipping, due to all the storms. This sucks big time!
