Has anyone ever made one work?!

I have a Mobi Pro 32Gb one and failed to get that to work out of the box. Eyefi Support sent me another from the US which arrived today and again, that won't work out of the box.

The network the card is supposed to generate is not seen by my iMac, my iPhone or my Surface Pro 4. No images transfer between the camera and any of them, despite the card being correctly set up according to the user manual.

I have sent another card log to Support but wondered if anyone here had ever experienced a working one?!

I have the pro x2....I don't like where they went with the mobi ones.

I assume it's similar though. Just without the direct PC transmission.

AFAIK, the mobi start an wireless AP for your phone to connect to then it sucks all the images off then does something with this?  That's how the X2 worked.

My x2 has been going about 4 years now...though annoyingly software support has ended in favour of the mobi ones.  But once you have it, you get software on your phone that will allow sending of images to a PC either imported from an eyefi, or taken on the phone.  A great way of always backing up your images.

I have had the older ones in the past that would connect to an actual wifi network and push photos to flickr as you took them. Since they took that feature away have not used them. Not interested in transfering to a mobile device and to have that pass it on, mainly because there is no way to have it on both the wifi for internet and talking to the card at the same time.

It will send it to your laptop, not just your phone - or your workstation if you are in the studio.

If you can get it to work.

Yeah, which is really no better than the vastly cheaper wifi SD cards and makes my investment in the old model eyefi card worthless because they have discontinued the cloud platform that went inbetween the card and flickr/google/whoever.
