We all live in a world that is constantly busy, a world of constantly updating Facebook profiles, tweets and endless emails. We also commute more than the previous generation, so it makes sense that we should now have the ability to stay connected on the move. In a world where social media rules and the working world is run online, we need to stay connected at all times, and this means even in the car!
Below we highlight 5 cars that have Wi-Fi hot spots!
1. The Chevrolet Corvette
When you buy a Chevrolet, you will also gain the technology of the OnStar and their revolutionary 4G LTE. This will give you access to high speed connectivity for streaming videos for your passengers, as well as allowing Wi-Fi connection to 8 portable devices. Therefore all your passengers will be kept happy.
2. The BMW 7 Series
BMW also uses LTE technology, and its 4G connectivity, to connect up to 8 different devices, including smartphones and tablets. The driver simply has to install a SIM card that connects to the car's arial, therefore allowing connectivity. The system is easily accessed from the front central console, and is also removable for greater security.
3. The Audi A7
It is no surprise that this luxury car comes with its very own Wi-Fi hot spot. It has its very own Audi Connect system. This incorporates a high tech infotainment system, that includes its its unique Wi-Fi hot spot facility, incorporating up to 8 portable devices.
4. The Ford Edge
All new Ford Edge models are now equipped with their very own MyFord Touch system. This clever tech converts any smartphone or laptop/tablet into a Wi-Fi hot spot. Therefore you can browse the Internet or stream movies without losing phone connectivity.
5. The Chrysler 200
Chrysler was the first car manufacturer to be responsible for Wi-Fi access in a car. This was way back in 2008. It still uses the same tech provided by Uconnect. Today you can also access Bluetooth streaming, voice control and voice texting. At present the Wi-Fi option is only available as a Pay as You Go option.
Buying a car with a Wi-Fi hot spot is hugely desirable, especially if you have children and need to keep them entertained on long journeys. We hope that these 5 suggestions have been useful and that you now feel able to explore further options at a budget to suit you. Good luck!
