    but the new cars now apparently have built-in routers to allow the vehicle itself to serve as a hot spot. The manufacturers were slow, but they finally got there.
    Our Honda has that. But to be honest Mike, new cars are getting so complex electronically that if anything does go wrong with any of it, you better have a good warranty or extended warranty. We recently received a notice from Honda saying to bring the CRV in so they can update the software with a newer version. What does that remind you of?

    OT: You may be able to do it yourself and sane the trip and appointment time at the dealers:

    @Mike I do remember seeing quite a few RVs when we went to AZ a few years ago. The thing that truly amazed me were the golf carts tricked out to look like luxury automobiles (Bentley, Rolls, etc).

    I'm going to wait until we reach 5K miles. Have to bring it in then anyway for their free oil change, checkup, etc. There's also a recall item that I'm not sure what is involved that has to be done at the same time. The letter from Honda says it will take an hour but when I called the dealer, they said we would have to leave it overnight. Somebody is blowing smoke....

    Maybe the Honda rep is assuming the dealer has an intelligent robot installed that could do the work. Or just underestimating like so many seem to be doing these days and still accepting their big bucks pay for their idiot incompetency!!
