Creates its own 3G Hotspot that carries a range of 150 feet! For just $29.95 per month a consumer can now have a connected car, saving the cell phone for the functions it was originally designed for.

I do like the Dart. If it had AWD I would have bought my wife one. Rumors are they will release an AWD version. I haven't done much reading on it lately so maybe those rumors have been confirmed or have been put to rest.

My company pays $60 for my 4g LTE hotspot from Verizon

I have a company paid one as well; it is amazing. I leave it in my car just because my other company pays for my home Internet.

I love this story since it always amused me when people would say that Sat Radio would become irrelevant when cars had hotspots as if that would be a cheaper option. For the most part unlimited cell phone data plans are going away. The cost of mobile data is not cheap.

I've tried listening to SiriusXM via Bluetooth in my car and I do like the sound quality but the connection just isn't as solid and I end up getting frustrated.

One of my favorite segments on the 60s Satellite Survey is Mike Kelley's Classic Cars- he tells which models were released to the public for the very 1st time. In '68 The Dodge Dart made it's debut and that was the car Mannix used on his show.

I was in a Dart yesterday.

To me, the car felt cheap as hell, Wi-Fi or not.
