PostPosted: Wed Sep 28, 2005 11:37 am    Post subject: OZOcar - New York's first eco-luxury car service

Why is this posted on EVDOforums.com?

This is a new type of limo company (see OZOcar - Home Page ). The cool part of this limo company, is that every car is equipped with Verizon BroadbandAccess accessible via WiFi within the car. While traveling to the airport, you can plug in your laptop (or just top of the battery), and instantly access the internet while in route. Also, via a laptop computer on board (iBook), you can see your exact location on a map in realtime (via GoogleMaps).

New York Magazine OZOcar Article

We built, delivered and host the OZOcar connectivity. If you are interested in adding this to your limo, truck, taxi, vehicle, contact us for more information.

Also, see this story on EVDOinfo.com

Dam, EVDO sure is coming main stream. Laptop intergration, PDAs, Phones, Aircards, routers, and now Limos. How about EVDO in cars, trains, buses, planes, cruise ships, motorcycles, bicycles, scooters, skateboards too? LOL!

Seattle Transit (More accurately King County Metro Transit) is testing Wi-Fi on buses - I wonder if they are also using Wi-Fi as their backend......

Oops - I meant I wonder if they are also using EVDO as the backend for the WiFi.

From what I have heard the buses are using:

- Junxion Boxes
- Verizon BroadbandAccess

GPS/GoogleMaps adds some interesting cool options. But that wouldn't work with Junxion or Kyocera or any other off the shelf router.

I had the worst experience with OZO car.
The driver missed the exit for my Terminal at JFK TWICE, and got so lost that I ultimately missed my flight.
But that wasn’t the worst of it all – as she was trying to get me to my Terminal, she backed up on the highway against oncoming traffic, and at one point she stopped in the middle as cars were honking and zooming by us.
It was truly very dangerous and I do not recommend this car company to anyone.
