3g/4g HAT/Shield

What do you guys use for your 3g/4g HAT/Shield? I am looking for a simple one. I don't need to many features (not that there are many), GPS and LTE would be nice.

Thanks for the help...

Well, my honest opinion is; I wouldn't even bother.

But there's still merit in the idea. It may not be the best tech available, however you'll have the satisfaction that you made it. Sometimes that alone is reason enough to go through with things.
yeah I am only considering

People have been known to violate NDAs - and usually in a way so as not to be traceable.

Things leak all the time.

Not at all unreasonable for someone to hope for something to come out of one of these threads.

Hey Pi developers,

Re: RPi3 Mobile

While possible (though I wouldn't advocate it as worthwhile) I see an instant conflict between your desires, and reality. You state you'd like a powerful smartphone. Not going to happen with a Pi, as the Pi uses old and outdated technology to begin with. For example, the SoC on a Pi3b is uses the s...

You connect it with a USB-A to USB-B printer cable for a regular Uno. You connect it with a USB-A to microUSB for a Nano.

It will appear as /dev/ttyACM0 or /dev/ttyUSB0 depending on the serial interface controller on the Arduino.

Re: RPi 3 combined with Arduino...

Why not get your mate to run a demo for you. Arduinos, esp8266 and wemoses are brilliant for simple IoT tasks. The raspberry is ideal as a command & control server for that stuff. It isn't adding extra power to the pi it's offloading tedious workload to the microcontroller. The Raspberry Pi is very...

RPi 3 combined with Arduino...

A classmate recently told me that one can connect an arduino to a RPi 3 in a certain way so that to add more computing power to the RPi. I am ver much skeptical that this works :) ... does arduino even work that way?

Does it work? If it does, I would like to know.

Thank you

Google Assistant on rpi3 without using a HAT

So I found this website: http://www.androidauthority.com/build-g ... pi-770296/; can anyone second this?, It sounds like it could work but I want to be sure.
Also if I do this project, how would I make it voice activated, (if at all possible, of course)?

What is the best way to control the pi 3 wirelessly/remotely, via an android device, (or maybe other device). The distance between the pi and the device should be 20 feet (about 7 meters) or less.
