2018 Ford Explorer New JerseyTransform Your SUV Into a WiFi Hotspot

We know that you can easily eat up your monthly data plan if you use your smartphone when you’re on the road 5 days a week for your commute and on weekends for other fun activities. This especially rings true if you have a family plan and kids who live on their phones or tablets to keep them entertained on long rides. That’s why you’ll enjoy the WiFi hotspot capability offered in the 2018 Ford Explorer. To get WiFi in your SUV, you have to get the 4G embedded modem option that’s newly available. This allows for up to 10 devices that are up to 50 feet away from the vehicle to be connected at once. You can connect your smartphone, your tablet and even your laptop for pleasure or business! This also makes the Explorer perfect if you’re looking for a new mobile office if you work on the go in sales or delivery service.
