Want to take all of your digital media on the road? VMOD mounts inside your vehicle and lets you easily move all of your music, video, photos and other media to your car via a Wi-Fi connection.
Simply register your VMOD with your home’s wireless network, then drag and drop your media files to the VMOD folder on your desktop. Directories can also be set to synchronize, so they can update when your car gets within range of your wireless network. As soon as you get into your car, you’ll be able to access all of your shared media in your vehicle.
Under the hood of the VMOD is actually a compact Windows XP PC, running StreetDeck’s slick in-car multimedia interface.The VMOD not only supports playback of music and videos, but can also be upgraded with optional GPS and satellite radio capabilities. You’ll also be able to surf the Internet when sitting in your driveway. In addition to 802.11 b/g connectivity, you might have luck with mobile broadband devices (like this one) as long as they connect via USB.
VMOD is capable of holding about 10,000 songs or 50 hours of standard definition video on its shock-resistant 40GB internal hard drive. The system also ships with a Bluetooth remote which lets you control playback from anywhere in the vehicle. The complete VMOD system will set you back just under $1000.
