Cadillac CTS Adds WiFi System

Cadillac CTS Adds WiFi System

Cadillac will offer wireless internet access for its best-selling model, adding a new dimension to the passenger experience. Cadillac Wi-Fi by Autonet Mobile comes to the CTS Sport Sedan in April, giving passengers full internet access in and around the car via their laptop or WiFi device.

The launch of Cadillac WiFi by Autonet Mobile will begin with live demonstrations at the New York International Auto Show April 10-19.

“Consumers today are frequently searching for WiFi access wherever they may be,” said Mark McNabb, North America Vice President, Cadillac. “Adding WiFi is a natural extension of the tech features already inside the CTS, such as a 40 gigabyte hard drive with USB port, a pop-up navigation system featuring real-time traffic and weather forecasts and the exclusive ability to pause and rewind live radio.”

Cadillac WiFi uses technology from Autonet Mobile, the world’s first Internet Service Provider designed exclusively for cars. Cadillac WiFi by Autonet Mobile turns the car into a WiFi hotspot and works with any operating system supporting any Wi-Fi enabled device. It delivers an easy-to-use and seamless internet experience, with 3G mobile technology that maintains internet connections while the car is in motion. The system can support several devices at once, enabling one passenger to update a Facebook page, while another is gaming online or watching YouTube videos, for example.

Designed for use by passengers, the system requires no special software and achieves speeds up to 800Kbps. The dealer-installed option will retail for $499, with a monthly service subscription of $29.
This is awesome. I hope wifi becomes a standard feature in all cars, not just cadillacs. No more loitering in the Borders parking lot for me.

Hm. But would this still cost as a monthly service to the people who purchase the vehicle? Or do you think it'd be like OnStar and include a year's worth of WiFi service?

It would be nice if they would include a year free, or offer it as a permanent, built-in option like a navigation system. Just what we all need, another monthly payment for something.

I know the reasoning is that PASSENGERS are supposed to use this feature, but I guarantee there's an army of knuckleheads out there who will be checking their email when they should be driving.

Seems kinda redundant. You're using a 3G network to get wifi in the car. Why not just get a network card in the first place?

If you have more than one laptop in the car (which I'm not sure why you would), you can just bridge the wifi and 3g to turn your laptop into a hot spot.
