Autonet Mobile, the world’s first WiFi hotspot certified for vehicles, has announced that it is now a GM OFFICIAL LICENSED PRODUCT for select Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet and GMC automobiles. Beginning this month, participating GM dealerships nationwide, along with gmextras.com, will offer the opportunity to add the next-level of entertainment to their vehicles, the Internet.
Autonet will enable vehicles, like the all new Chevy Equinox, to be compatible with all WiFi enabled gadgets such as laptops, gaming devices, iPod Touch and even the iPhone. The new system also comes with a docking station so users can easily move it from one GM vehicle to another.
“Ninety percent of customers prefer surfing the Internet over just watching movies,” said Sterling Pratz, CEO of Autonet Mobile. “Customers want the biggest brands the Internet has to offer in their car such as Facebook, YouTube and FlyCast Internet radio.”
“We’ve done a lot of research and have found that consumers want the connected lifestyle in their cars and trucks for both work and entertainment,” said Chris Rauser, Accessories Manager for Chevrolet. “Internet not only provides innovation, it also gives the customer multiple entertainment options. Now passengers young and old can email, watch YouTube videos, connect on Facebook and play online games on long trips or even in the everyday commute to the office.
