So the "PRO" card comes with RAW file uploads and Nationwide Hotspot access for a year as well as WiFi Geotaging. So if you can do without those, then get the "Mobile" or "Connect" one. Here is more info: http://www.eye.fi/products#product_comparison

These are coming up a lot lately. As I've said before, they do work quite well. The software still needs attention on the UI side of things; it works, but it's rather clunky.

I've always wondered about the usability of these cards in car stereo headunits, e.g., syncing the card wirelessly for music with a computer, like an iPod or iPhone.

Anyone?

These won't do that. They're strictly for transferring photos from your camera to computer (or smartphone) wirelessly.

Distance from the closest access point has a big impact on transfer rates. Even a few feet makes a noticeable difference to how quickly files are transmitted.

Lately I have started setting the camera on a shelf by my closest bridge unit & pictures upload about as fast as a card to PC transfer.

Interesting. I've heard that reported as well, so I believe it's a valid point. It has never been my experience though on either of my Fi cards. I can be shooting out in my backyard and uploading with a perfectly normal data rate.

I wonder if there is something to either the host body or the wireless router's chipset impacting that. On my Canons (or my kids Woot Kodak) i've had no issues.

I've even bounced photos off my laptop through hotel crappy wireless through the interwebs and onto my NAS with success. (Bandwidth-limited, in that case, to aforementioned hotel crappy wireless.)

Seriously, I only come here for the articles.

That could well be the case. Mine is in a Nikon Coolpix S9100. The SD card is sandwiched between the battery & joypad. That probably attenuates the signal pretty good.

I think you have to pay for the nationwide Hotspot I doubt they are giving that away free, at least the Woot Refurbished version....

Any viability for transferring video?

Yes, it sends video the same way it sends the pictures. I've been impressed with the one I got a few months ago, as a side benefit since i have their app on my phone all the pictures i take with it also magically show up on my laptop.

Just to confirm, I need the Pro if I want to transfer RAW files instead of jpeg?

That's the way the website lists them and my pro card does send RAW images just fine.

Yeah, I don't get that either, because my 4GB Connect X2 transfers photos regardless of the format I'm shooting - jpg or raw.

Vendor product comparsion chart: http://www.eye.fi/products#product_comparison

Connect X2 (4GB) and Mobile X2 (8GB) are identical except for capacity. Pro X2 (8GB) adds WiFi-based geotagging.
