Be aware that there are many areas where cellular reception will be weak or non-existent. Along major highways, you'll likely be okay but even then an intervening mountain can cause connection issues. On the back roads, all bets are off. (Even satellite reception may be blocked if there's a big hill immediately to your south.)
