TracNet 100 Mobile Stuffs WiFi and TV in your Car


Here it is, the thing to make your computer a little bit more like KITT. The TracNet 100 Mobile puts a WiFi hotspot, web browsing, and IPTV in your hoopty ride. The data love comes courtesy of a Verizon EVDO card, built into the controller box. That box itself has 802.11G wireless, 3 ethernet ports, and an MSN IPTV tuner. Topping off the package is a remote and keyboard. But know that the TracNet system doesn't come with a monitor. You'll have to hook your own up through the VGA, or standard video outputs. Internet AND cable in the car? Looks like I'm going to need to fit a Lazyboy recliner in the backseat.

Of course, if you're looking for data strictly, and can do without the IPTV, we're going to go ahead and recommend you buy the Kyocera mobile EVDO router instead. It's only a few hundred bucks, vs the $2000 dollar sticker price for the TracNet.
