Make Your Car a HotSpot

Chrysler’s Mopar will offer “Unconnect web” as of August as a dealer-installed accessory. Where there is cell service it will create a mobile hot spot with a 100-foot range. The suggested price for the router is $449, with the monthly access fee being $29. The service is provided by Autonet Mobile, founded in 2005 and provider of the Avis Connect service, a Wi-Fi connection that plugs into a vehicle’s cigarette lighter or wall outlet.

I have to believe there are cheaper ways to do this, thought they are not installed in the car. Further, with new handsets becoming computers, is the “conversion” to Wi-Fi needed? Will cars be tailgating one another to gain access to Wi-Fi?
