uconnect to Provide WiFi in Cars

uconnectIt won’t be long before you can get WiFi in your car or truck. The “uconnect” system will be available in most 2009 Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep automobiles. The wireless technology is a dealer-installed extra and operates over cell phone lines. Users will be able to utilize laptops, cell phones, and MP3 players with an onboard control, even when moving. It also features GPS, a 30GB hard drive, and an option for satellite TV and radio. While there is a monthly fee involved, there is not yet a specific amount announced.

This is definetly bringing internet wherever you go now a days. But something that I don’t get is how is WiFi supposed to work over cell towers. Are the three car dealers going to like put WiFi everywhere or do the cars get WiFi from other networks? And if from other networks, how are you supposed to use it while moving? This is a definetly a good idea in my opinion.

I think WiFi for cars is a great idea.  You could even use an online GPS system through devices like the iPhone to navigate through the road.  I see many uses for it.  It would also   prevent people from having to steal internet connection while they’re on the road.  I hope to see this technology integrated in all cars.
