SAN FRANCISCO (BUSINESS WIRE)-- Autonet Mobile, the first internet entertainment system for cars, is eliminating “Are we there yet?” from kids’ vocabulary this summer by turning the family car into a rolling WiFi hotspot.

Now, everyone in the car can bring their own computer or WiFi device and be part of “getting there” with the ability to track points of interest on Google Earth; research the history of towns they are passing through on Wikipedia; or post pictures of the trip in real-time on Facebook, flickr or blog pages.

This summer, as Americans take to the roadways, families are replacing the DVD player with the hottest accessory for the car – internet access from Autonet Mobile.

Used by NASCAR driver Kasey Kahne and his team to stay connected on the road, by Discovery Channel’s Storm Chaser, and several rock bands who take it on tour, Autonet Mobile’s entertainment system is also available for families who want to stay connected from their cars, keep passengers of all ages entertained on road trips, check the news at home, research points of interest along the way, and make hotel reservations as they cruise the highway.
