I cannot find anything on this product on the Ford website or here. How does this system work? What carrier is it through? What is the monthly/annual cost? Are there data limits or hard stops?

Looking at a NEW 2019 F350 DRW Platinum with this option.

I assume mine is the same, it works via AT&T and costs me $15 a month for unlimited data, only works while the engine is on AFAICT. There was a free trial when I got mine.

So I am now on an AT&T plan where I have a limit of 9 GB. So with this $15 a month plan, would the GB in data used while in the truck not be subtracted from my regular plan?

I have 2 seperate accounts (and 2 bills) there is some linking of the accounts for the plan I have. I can see seperate usage and it does not count towards my phone account. My son was using his ipad on it while travelling the other day so it is easy for me to confirm.

Fordpass connect not only enables wifi capability (via At&t for a monthly fee), but also provides some free functions via the Fordpass app.

Inquiring minds want to know.

As I read the Ford propaganda “FordPass” only offers remote start, lock and unlock, vehicle location, and vehicle status check. “Connected service excludes Wi-Fi hotspot” so must one use AT&T? Good coverage is atrocious, otherwise I would not be using Verizon.

At&t is the only choice. The truck will cone with a 3 month/10gb trial, that will give you the opportunity to see if its worth a monthly service plan.
