The new Lexus IS's state-of-the-art on-board technology includes a new Lexus Hotspot system, which offers independent, high speed Wi-Fi connectivity for every vehicle occupant.

Always available and immediately activated when the car is switched on, Lexus Hotspot allows for the simultaneous use of up to five Wi-Fi devices on board. It also enables in—car interaction between them for both business and gaming purposes.

Wi-Fi alliance certified, Lexus Hotspot operates via two 3G diversity antennas which guarantee optimum connectivity even at high vehicle speeds. 3G and 2G mobile communications technology supported and capable of over-the-air software updating, it is open to any GSM operator via the customer's SIM card.

Not only does the system's dual antenna format give superior performance to that of a smartphone-enabled hotspot, but it is also free from the excessive battery drainage and other limitations which typify smartphone Wi-Fi connectivity.

Lexus Hotspot is hard wired into the car battery to provide a constant power source. It will operate in all weather conditions and temperatures between -20 and 65 degrees Celsius.

Improving in-car signal strength, operability and user flexibility, Lexus Hotspot offers drivers, those working from their cars, taxi- and chauffeur-driven business users and even entire families the ultimate in affordable Wi-Fi connectivity.

The Lexus Hotspot is also available in GS, CT and RX.
