Citroën announces on-board WiFI access [video]

Features a roaming override function

Citroën has announced plans to offer WiFi internet connectivity on the C3, C3 Picasso, C4, C4 Picasso, C5, C6 and DS3.

Priced from £545 (including installation and a VAT of 17.5%), the 'WiFi On Board' system creates a wireless network in the vehicle. To do this, users install a 3G or 3G+ SIM card (which is available from all major internet / cell phone providers) and turn the device on.

While everything seems simple enough, Citroën decided to make the system unique by adding a roaming override function. When traveling, the device can deactivate itself - when roaming - to prevent users from racking up excessive data charges.

CITROËN ‘CRÉATIVE TECHNOLOGIE' DELIVERS ON-BOARD WIFI ACCESS

Citroën has announced the availability of on-board wireless internet connectivity for its New C3, C3 Picasso, C4, C4 Picasso, C5, C6 and DS3 models. Available as an accessory, Citroën's new WiFi On Board system enables multiple devices to connect to the internet whilst on the move, or when the vehicle is stationary.

An installed WiFi box, which houses a 3G or 3G+ SIM card - that can be purchased from any mobile internet provider - creates a wireless network within the vehicle allowing multiple WiFi devices such as laptops, smart phones and portable games consoles to simultaneously check e-mails, play games, tweet and surf the internet. The system makes it possible for passengers to enjoy internet access during journeys and to make more effective use of their time in the car. Fleet and Business users can also access the internet when the car is parked safely. To avoid expensive data costs when travelling abroad, the system is installed with roaming disabled as the default setting.

Citroën WiFi On Board is available from just £545, including installation and VAT at 17.5% (excludes the cost of the 3G/3G+ SIM card and internet access charges).

The availability of Citroën WiFi On Board will be extended to other car and LCV models before the end of 2010.

Anyway, I went on the M40 the other day, and I found this: http://img.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2007/03_02/JClarksonSPL_468x527.jpg

So now Jeremy Clarkson can once again say "I went on the M40 the other day, and I found this." *titpic* Citroen owners can now say this too (Chrysler did it first, I believe). Ah, the marvels of technology.
