    Not sure if this is of any help to anyone... I love the idea of being able to access Internet radio, etc, but absolutely refuse to pay the hideous price of the mobile data package offered by VW. On android (I'm sure there's others for ios) I've installed an app called Carspot ready, it turns...

    Van Wifi Hotspot

    Just wondering if the more technically minded of you might know if there is an advantage to using something like the VW car stick as opposed to the usual gadget that just plugs into your 12v power as supplied by all the big service providers (based on HUAWEI Balong B720).
