I want it. question tho wouldnt you have to use your phone as a hotspot for internet access? Now Im considering that double din conversion for my GMT400. I think this might be a go for my 800

I didn't mind the GM radio but now things are getting interesting.

Using ur cell as a hotspot works but if u need a more permanent install, cell providers have USB Internet dongles.

The biggest problem I face is figuring out how my cell provider handles it. I have a sprint galaxy4 and its got a hot spot function but its not free to use. More research is needed here but Im bout ready to pull the trigger

Guess I should read links before posting. looks like I can tether no problem.

Now to decide witch one to buy. The thing that bothers me is I really see no name brands on any of them. hmm

No name, it's Chinese. No major brand has made one as far as I know.

And if they did, it would be twice the price yet, still made in China!

So are they worth the gamble? Iv seen them on eBay a little bit cheaper. They all function wise appear to be about the same.

SME YouTube link twice. I see the Jamaica dude before. I'll keep researching. I keep finding them cheaper and cheaper. I'm also reading different stuff on weather sprint let's me tether or not. Looks like I can either root my phone or get an app that bypasses the factory locks altogether. I'm still finding infonthats making me hesitate

That's just nuts. What do they care what device accesses the internet?

You're paying for data transfer.

I regularly use my phone to access the internet with my laptop.

I've been rooting android phones for years. Warranties have always been honored too. I've never had any problems with it. Custom Roms are available through the XDA forums. My advice is read, read, read. Android is incredibly flexible and customizable and there are a plethora of different Roms available. With T-Mobile my tethering is limited to 250mb with a stock ROM. With custom Roms it's unlimited. You also can get rid of all the bloatware and background data tracking apps. It's your phone and you have the ability to use it as you please.

They care because it's a feature they can bill you for. Now your computer can access the internet... WITH YOUR PHONE! JUST 99.99 a minute!

The phone rooting is sounding like a good thing more and more. One thing that bothers me is all the bloat crap, be it on my PC or mobile device. Im not to savvy to figure that king of stuff out but android seems much easier to do stuff like that. There are forums loaded with this info, finding the time to read it is tough

Wow!

I pay something like $25 extra and I have 6G. Phone is not rooted and I can do as I please with those 6G

At work a guy has unlimited for less than $100/month and we can tether off him!

The hotspot range is pretty impressive too. 100 ft in a shop full of machines.

Question? Is there any reason the one you posted in the link wouldn't work in my gmt800? I like the almost factory look of it so much better than most of the others iv seen

They work with the steering buttons so, there could be a prob.

But, there's different models with same look:

Gosh I gotta think theres people that have made the GMT900 radio work in the 800s. Im just thinking it might be more plug and play, maybe save money on adapters and such. Plus I think it looks more better

Another option is freedom pop hotspot if you just want to quickly check your email or such on the road. Personally, I hate limits and making use of Comcast right now, but will drop them like a hot tin pan if they start with limits. I have no contract and detest contracts too. My cell provider keeps sending me hints to upgrade my unlimited plan. Nope. I'll probably sand down the sim card to continue using it in a new phone if I can find one black friday. :) In my previous job, I had a 4g hotspot that worked quite well. New job gave me only a 3g hotspot and it is sloooooooow, but it works in a pinch.

Speakers in my truck need replacing again. Probably upgrade the whole system since I'll be keeping the truck for a while.
