It attaches via the new Click & Go magnetic mount, making it easy to install; the mount uses magnets and powered touch points, allowing the camera itself to be free from wires and therefore be easy to remove when you leave the car.
The Linksys MAX-STREAM AC600 Wi-Fi Micro USB Adapter upgrades Windows-based PCs to Next-Gen AC Wi-Fi and makes it MU-MIMO (Multi-user, multiple-input, multiple-output) ready, allowing the Wi-Fi router to communicate with multiple devices simultaneously at a faster and more efficient way. In our household alone, we have seven devices connected at any one time, which often results in slow loading and buffering.
One of the sad facts of growing older, on top of your skin sagging, joints creaking and taking 3 days to get over a night out, your hair becomes thinner revealing more face and head than your ever knew you had.
