With Ain’t Leo retiring on the 28th, we have been cutting back on bills. We ditched the smart phones, but wanted to stay connected when we’re camping. We solved the problem by adding this little jewel. It is battery powered and can be charged with a car or wall charger. This is one of the few units we found that has a connection for an outside antenna.

I spoke recently with a blogger who is a full-time RVer and she has been using this unit for almost ¬†year. The only problem she has had is the antenna connection. It doesn’t have a “click” detent, so the antenna cable can work loose if you’re not careful.

The next purchase is our outside antenna and signal booster. Most places we go usually have decent cell phone reception. The one exception that I recall has been Pedernales Falls State Park. The surrounding hills kill the signal in many of the sites. The external antenna and booster should take care of that.

We chose this unit because we can use the iPad, the Galaxy Tab, the netbook and my laptop simultaneously. Ain’t Leo has told some of her clients that she would consider some contract work after February, so this setup should be ideal for letting us work a couple of days a week from the campground. I told her any offer that required office visits was a deal breaker. The next few years are for traveling – not for fighting downtown traffic.

The unit has performed flawlessly so far. I’ll follow up with further comments after we’ve used it on the road. I will say that the nav system on the 10″ Galaxy screen is too cool for words.

Happy camping to all and hope to see you on the road someday.
