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!

Dr. Z has found that 4G with a good signal to be more reliable than wifi due to the steadiness of the signal.
