T-Mobile today introduced the SyncUP Drive, a plug-in device for cars that provides connectivity as well as safety and analytics tools. The SyncUP Drive plugs into most cars' OBD-II port and can be used to generate an in-car, rolling hotspot for keeping WiFi devices connected through T-Mobile's LTE network. The associated app also allows owners to analyze driving behavior, track the location of their car, set speed and geo-fence limits, and even receive diagnostic information about the car itself. The SyncUP Drive costs $150, but T-Mobile will give it to customers for free as long as they agree to a two-year service plan with a minimum of 2 GB per month. The SyncUP Drive is made by ZTE. Service plan pricing varies.

How different from ZTE Mobley

There are several devices that create LTE Hotspots in cars via OBD-II connections. ZTE also makes the Mobley for AT&T. There is the VinLi as well as devices for Verizon. It would be nice to have an unlocked Hotspot that just had the pinouts for power only so it couldn't cause any problems with the car as that could be a potential problem. http://www.tomsguide.com/us/obd2-dongle-dange rs,news-21590.html
