One car company is investing in tech upgrades in New York State Parks, and it means you won't have to use your wireless data to post all those vacation photos to Instagram. Toyota has partnered with parks all over the country to expand Wi-Fi availability, and there are many parks in New York State that will have the new service available this summer.

According to a press release from New York State Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation, the new systems will be installed at:

  • Gantry Plaza in Queens
  • Roberto Clemente in the Bronx
  • Bear Mountain State Park in the Hudson Valley
  • Additional locations at Niagara Falls State Park

Public Wi-Fi systems have already been installed at Jones Beach, Robert Moses, Niagara Falls, Saratoga Spa and East River State Parks. To use the free Wi-Fi, just look for the "Oh, Ranger!" network on your device and follow the directions.

The "Oh, Ranger!" WiFi program is being installed and maintained by Toyota with no additional burden to the taxpayers. Of course you'll have to agree to their terms and conditions to use the service. Do you think free Wi-Fi will have an impact on where you take vacations?
