Ford Plans In-car WiFi with Next-Gen Sync

Ford Motor Company plans to include a mobile hotspot capability in vehicles equipped with the second generation of its popular SYNC in-car connectivity system next year.


Inserting an owner's compatible USB mobile broadband modem -- sometimes called an "air card" -- into SYNC's USB port will produce a secure wireless connection that will be broadcast throughout the vehicle, allowing passengers with WiFi-enabled mobile devices to access the Internet anywhere the broadband modem receives connectivity.


"While you're driving to grandma's house, your spouse can be finishing the holiday shopping and the kids can be chatting with friends and updating their Facebook profiles," said Mark Fields, Ford president of The Americas. "And you're not paying for yet another mobile subscription or piece of hardware because Ford will let you use technology you already have."http://www.ford.com
