Chrysler cars made in the next year can be made WiFi ready via a dealer-installed option in vehicles, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Owners of 2009 Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep models can choose to put in WiFi as part of Chrysler’s “UConnect” system.

I've thought about using an aircard for this same idea when I build a carPC.

Its a cool idea, and will be a ridiculous distraction to driving.

That's very interesting. I always wondered why one of the wireless phone companies didn't buy up OnStar and add the service to your phone bill for an addl $10 a month instead of what is charged for it now.

All this stuff is integratable and it makes things very exciting. Sure hope I don't get behind a driver surfing the web though.

If you had the right programming and if this were connectible to the car's electronics, you might be able to check on your car's health.

I'm an idea guy. Too bad I can't turn it on like a water faucet, though.
