This is a great deal. I know a guy who is working for Weymouth MA Honda and he told me about this about a year ago, but I didn’t manage to get one for myself yet. It is not expensive at all considering the advantages it would bring to me, as a driver.

I believe it's a shame that I have to buy one of those cars to get the Wi-Fi gadget, because I have a couple of used conversion vans I love to drive and I would have surely liked it if they had a router like that. I don't find the deal too good, though, mostly because I only get the discount if I get a new car.

I was browsing a car donations website when I found your article here. If you ask me, I wouldn't pay for this service. 1GB of data? or 5GB for 59$? That is way too expensive for my taste.

So, in order to have Wi-Fi in my car, I have to buy a Chevy. Is it specified anywhere if the car must be brand new? Because I was wondering if I could find something worthy at a used trucks Des Moines fair. I am a show-off and I would really like to impress my friends with this, but then again, who wouldn't, due to the fact that it also is useful? If this is the way I can have them both, I would go for it.

Wow! It's great to know that GM is coming up with In-car Wi-Fi for such low price while compared to other similar products available in the market. I wish to have one set up in my car as well.

So far the biggest issue was people talking on their phone while driving... Say welcome to people browsing sites and twittering while driving. Now this is going to get ugly. I read on auto insurance.org that over 30% or accidents are linked to improper cell phone usage. Would be nice if someone could share some data about internet usage once that's available!

Yep, typos happen. The sooner you accept it, the sooner you can get on with more important things ;)

lol I got a router in my Chevy Trailblazer and didn't cost me but $40...

Of course thats just for connecting  multiple PCs and adding wifi to my HTPC if I go to a lan party but really doesn't do much yet.

I'm still disappointed in the total lack of reasonable mobile internet, i mean really 5GB cap... pathetic

Guess high gain antennas and hoping for unsecured access points is the best I can do.

This seems kind of worthless.  As mentioned in the article; you could just get a MiFi, mount it in your car, add a data plan to your account, and call it a day.

Of course they are going to charge top dollar for an in car router that only costs a couple of bucks, just like navigation packages cost $500+- when we have GPS on our smart phones and a tomtom costs a few bucks at best buy. Total rip off. My broadband provider has free wifi all over the state, and any place thats not covered there's surely a starbucks or other free wifi hotspot around. If there weren't i'd just get an unlimited data plan and be set. Now to go get my girl friend some online car insurance quotes so she can get her car on the road again.
