What is the alternative? Your mobile device (iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, Android) with the Z4 software loaded onto them is a great solution. Some of you may be taking your laptops–you can have Z4 loaded onto those as well!
For those devices with wifi, you are limited to using them when you are near a wifi hotspot such as a hotel or restaurant.
For those of you with a mobile device with 4G capabilities, you can use video while the car is moving as a PASSENGER-not as the DRIVER. Dr. Z has conducted meetings using his mobile phone in a car as a passenger using 4G! Be mindful–most 4G have data plans that have a 2GB cap–which is about 2-3 hours of mobile video communication per MONTH.
Dr. Z has found that 4G with a good signal to be more reliable than wifi due to the steadiness of the signal.
Enjoy mobile video!!
Happy traveling from Dr. Z!
Dr. Z cares about your communication access.
