Jan and her husband bought an RV and want to know how to get online while traveling. Leo says there are three ways. 1) There will probably be Wi-Fi at any campground or RV park she can stop at. But it will likely be overloaded and slow. 2) She can hotspot from the cellular carrier. She can open up a phone for it or pick up a MiFi card to handle multiple devices. It'll be dependent on the coverage map though. Lastly, she can get an RV satellite connection. The problem there is they have to re-aim it every time they stop, and they will not work while they drive.
Johnny Jet is in a big beef with Air Canada after they canceled his flight and refuses to give him a refund. In fact, the Department of Transportation had to announce again that airlines are required to refund the money within 7 days of cancellation. Airlines are also starting to see more activity this week and are now starting to take passenger's temperatures before allowing them to board. In Hong Kong, they tracking passenger movements to be sure they haven't been exposed.
Gregory has an RV and wants to know if he should get satellite for it that will give him faster WiFi. Leo says he could, but it would cost him a lot of money and would be a hassle to re-position the dish often. The future is in LTE, and it's also more affordable. Often times it's faster than home internet as well. He can get a WiFi device and he will then have access to over five different devices. Leo recommends Google Fi because it has three different ISPs on the same device and switches to the one that is better. And he can pay as he goes with it.
Dennis is going to be RVing full time and wants to know the best way to stay connected. Leo says that he can get a satellite add-on to his RV and many come with it built-in. He'll always have to aim it where he goes, though.
Dick's Giz Wiz entry this week is an RV. The NY International Car Show is in town and he saw the Mercedes Benz Self Driving car. Interesting because it has a feature where it will drive around if you can't find a parking spot. But what really caught his eye was the American Coach American Eagle motor home. 43’ motor homes with extending sidewalls with 450 square feet. $695,000.
