"If you need wireless internet access on your boat,
car, helicopter or while hiking, this may be the solution you are
looking for. A Linux powered device sharing mobile broadband
EVDO/HSDPA on a wifi router. The hardware runs on 110/220 volt with
a DC power supply but it's very flexible allowing for 11-56 Volt DC
input and even 5 volt trough an internal connector.
"The idea is simple, use your existing HSDPA data card to
provide Internet access via WiFi. People use them for their car's,
boats, rapidly deployable wifi access points anywhere high speed

make an automatic gps tracker which shows his location in google
