Who wouldn’t want Wi-Fi in their car? GM is offering up the option to purchase the Autonet Mobile Wi-Fi router for seven Chevy vehicles. The system will run $199, after mail-in rebate. While that may seem a bit steep, keep in mind that the normal price is $500. The system is available in the Equinox, Traverse, Silverado, Tahoe, Suburban, Avalanche, and Express. To get the cheap price, perspective customers have to buy one of these vehicles before December 31st.
Customers have to agree to a 2 year service agreement running $29 per month. That only comes with 1GB of data, after which the service shuts off until the next billing cycle. A 5GB plan is available for $59. The Autonet service uses the Verizon network to provide data. An interested party could just get a Verizon MiFi and have a Wi-Fi network powered by Verizon everywhere, not just in the car. Still, if your dream is to impress your friends with a Wi-Fi router in your car, the time to buy is now.
