T-Mobile's SyncUP Drive Creates In-Car Hotspot
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.
