Dearborn, Dec 21 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Ford Motor Company will soon make vehicles into WiFi hot spots when it will launch the second generation of its popular SYNC® in-car connectivity system next year. And the methodology to turn your vehicle into a Wi-Fi is very simple. All that you need to do is to insert an owner’s compatible USB mobile broadband modem – sometimes called an “air card” – into SYNC’s USB port which will produce a secure wireless connection that will be broadcast throughout the vehicle, allowing passengers with WiFi-enabled mobile devices to access the Internet anywhere the broadband modem receives connectivity.

“While you’re driving to grandma’s house, your spouse can be finishing the holiday shopping and the kids can be chatting with friends and updating their Facebook profiles,” said Mark Fields, Ford president of The Americas. “And you’re not paying for yet another mobile subscription or piece of hardware because Ford will let you use technology you already have.”

Through this amazing system we can produce a secure wireless connection throughout the vehicle. All of your passengers will be able to use the Internet on road trips now. And the best part is that the Sync WiFi system has no monthly cost of its own. It works with whatever mobile Internet service that you already have. The default security for all networks it creates will be WPA2. Each device that connects to the signal will need to be approved of by the driver.
