have been a user of Woosh for a few years now and overall think the product is great - very reliable and good value for money (if not a little slow in comparison)

The benefit to me of using it is that it was quick and easy to set up and has been really reliable over the last few years.

now i want to see if i can somehow 'take it on the road'. does any one know if it is possible to take a woosh modem, router and wifi cell phone into your car if you were driving around town? ie basically use the woosh modem like a portable modem - but without needing a cellular data plan.
You would need suitable power adaptors to plug into the car etc but has anyone tried that?

I have no idea how well it would work while moving but if you mean take it with you and use it when you're stopped somewhere then it should work fine as long as you in an area that has woosh coverage.

Woosh doesn't hand over between sites very well so it's unlikely you'll maintain sessions while moving if that's important to you.

Providing you are in Woosh coverage then you are fine, but driving can be a bit of a problem as it will drop out because of the way the system hands over (or doesn't, it depends on the neighbouring cell lists possessed by the site's INC).

But to make it a mobile rig is very easy. I used to have an omnidirectional (now frowned upon by Woosh!) on a bracket (removable of course) that used to fit to the roof rack of my ute. I had a decent inverter tucked under the seat which ran my laptop, modem, and a VOIP gateway.
