New Chevrolet 4G LTE WiFI
My family and I take a lot of road trips. A lot of road trips. You might say we are road trip enthusiasts, and if given the choice, would rather take a car than a plane anywhere. I am a firm believer that the places and people we see along the way are just as important as our final destination, so make every effort to stop at every kitschy roadside attraction we can…much to my families annoyance. Envision a female Clark Griswald…that’s me!
Frequently, we’ve taken roads trip with not just my son, but several of his friends. For the most part they tolerate being in the car, but are definitely more excited about the final destination, not my many stops along the way, and certainly not all the time in the car. The first few hours they talk, read, and play games, but eventually they get bored. You know that old saying, Life is a journey, not a destination? This is usually true, but Ralph Waldon Emerson never spent several hours in a car with bored teenagers! In their world of 24/7 technology, boredom is torture. They are not able to access the internet to download movies and music, play online games, and look up interesting facts…. Some grow restless, and others get downright grumpy. It can make an already long car ride even longer.
As a passenger on some of our trips, I also get bored with my paperback novels and yearn for time on my computer to get online work done. I might also want to look up information about a region we are driving through, learn about local restaurants and hotels, and find more of those kitschy roadside stops. Or, I might want to play an online game! Hot spot boxes are expensive, and using our smart phones can drain precious data time, so we’ve learned to do without the internet. I’m sure your family has similar experiences while road tripping, right?
Guess what? Your family (and mine) don’t have to endure those boring long car trips anymore! Chevrolet has launched a line of vehicles with 4G LTE Wi-Fi built into their cars, and have more cars coming with the service. As a matter of fact, Chevrolet is the first and only automotive company to offer built-in 4G LTE Wi-Fi service to cars, trucks, and crossover vehicles. The Chevy Onstar 4G LTE Wi-Fi service is the ultimate Wi-Fi hotspot, offering “always ready when you need it” built-in 4G LTE Wi-Fi service, with an always strong signal for up to seven devices!
Let’s do the math here a moment. An average car trip involves my husband, me, my son, and two of his friends. All five of us, plus an additional two extra people would have access to Wi-Fi for our entire trip. Of course the driver would never access Wi-Fi while driving, but we take turns behind the wheel, so there would be Wi-Fi available for all of our devices. My son and his friends could download movies or play online games, I could search the web for interesting new tourist spots, and my husband could do business work while I drive. It’s also perfect for those times we might be parked at a picnic spot or roadside attraction, or when the hotel does not have good (or free) Wi-Fi service. We would always have connectivity, where ever we are, even in the middle of nowhere (which is usually the case, since I like to take the “scenic route). Unlike smart phones, the Wi-FI service would always be available, and would not drain our precious data.
The Chevrolet vehicles that currently offer the available built-in 4G LTE Wi-Fi are the: 2015 Chevy Volt, 2015 Chevy Malibu, 2015 Chevy Impala, 2015 Corvette, and the 2015 Equinox.
The 4G LTE Wi-Fi service is coming soon to the: 2015 Spark, 2015 Spark EV, 2015 Sonic, 2015 Cruze, 2015 Cruze Diesel, 2015 SS, 2015 Trax, 2015 Tahoe, 2015 Suburban, 2015 Colorado, and the 2015 Silverado.
How would WI-Fi make life easier for you while on the road?
