The AyrMesh Cab Hub is a combination of three things: our trusty, patent-pending AyrMesh Hub2n, a cable that allows the Hub to be powered from a normal 12 volt utility “cigarette lighter” plug, and an external magnetic-mount antenna to get the Hub’s antenna outside and up in the clear.
When it is all set up, the AyrMesh Hub2n rides inside the cab of your vehicle, protected from shock and vibration, but mounted where you can see the “signal lights” if you need to. The cable is plugged into one of the 12v utility outlets, and the antenna is put on a ferrous surface on top of the cab. The Hub connects to the other Hubs in your AyrMesh network, giving you WiFi connectivity in your cab.
By using the AyrMesh Cab Hub, you’ll have a strong WiFi signal in your Cab whenever you’re in range of one of your other AyrMesh Hubs – up to 2.5 miles away. This means you can use your smartphone, tablet, or laptop from the cab of your tractor, sprayer, combine, or truck. It also makes it easy to transfer data from your WiFi-equipped in-cab monitors, like an AgLeader monitor with their AgFinity adapter, using your AyrMesh network. If your equipment doesn’t currently have WiFi, talk to your dealer about it – vendors are rolling out new products all the time.
If your monitor supports WiFi data transfer, you can use your AyrMesh network to transfer data from your monitor without having to rely on expensive and unreliable cellular links.

I can connect directly to my home network using AgFiniti but can’t access files, folders, or transfer files anywhere except to AgLeader’s cloud. As far as I can tell, AgLeader only uses my network to get to their cloud storage with no option to do otherwise. Am I missing something?
Jon, unfortunately, you’re not. The AgFiniti only works with the AgLeader terminal. That’s the advantage of the Ayrstone AyrMesh solution: an AyrMesh Cab Hub (or even stationary Hubs on your farm) can connect to the AgFiniti so it can move its data to AgLeader’s cloud, and it can simultaneously connect to your smartphone or tablet so you can move other kinds of data around, as well as connecting to other standard WiFi devices. Because it uses standard (WiFi) technology, it’s extremely flexible.
