5 GHz WiFi

Post by n6rfi »

Please consider adding 5 GHz WiFi to future products. An increasing number of cars are shipping with built-in hotspots, but some only support 5 GHz WiFi. This isn't the fault of SharkRF, but future OpenSpots will be more attractive if they support 5 GHz.

Thanks for a great product! I love my OpenSpot2.

Hello all

I fully agree with this request, since we are at it, why not add the 6Ghz band too?

OpenSpots 1 and 2 are great products, keep it up!

Hmmm, I work for the organization that sets the rules on Wifi Hotspots in cars till 2027 and its mandatory that they have 2.4 till 2027. Where did you get this information that they are only shipping 5Ghz wifi? I think your comments are made up.

Well think again. If your claim is accurate the manufacturers aren't all listening to your organization. Or I had a faulty product. Either way you assertion about making up a statement is baseless and just plain rude.
