It does all the work for you.
Eye-Fi built a wireless transmitter right into a Class 6 SDHC memory card, giving you the power to wirelessly transfer photos and videos with 802.11n speeds to the device of your choice and to your favorite online sharing sites like Facebook, Picasa, YouTube and many more.

Speaking of anywhere, the Pro X2 will also automatically geotag your photos and videos by location using Wi-Fi positioning. All of this comes in one powerful little SDHC card.
This 8GB card looks and stores photos and videos just like a traditional SDHC memory card, but will also grant you endless memory. Using a feature called Endless Memory Mode, this innovative card automatically frees up space after media is safely delivered. You'll never miss a shot again.

Automatically tag photos by location with Wi-Fi positioning. You take the photos, and let Eye-Fi do the rest. Your photos will be automatically tagged to show where they were taken.

This notice formally begins the final stage of the “end-of-life” (EOL) process started in mid-2015 for the affected products.

All customers who have a Mobi or Mobi Pro products purchased since 2013 are not affected by this announcement.
We began EOL on these product lines in 2015 largely driven by technological obsolescence of some of the key technologies included in these products.

Since mid-2015 we have been offering migration services free of charge for Customers who have paid Eyefi Premium accounts. We will continue to offer this service migrating your Eyefi View data to Eyefi Cloud. You can request a migration here. For those customers that wish to use an Eyefi Mobi Pro card in place of their earlier generation products, we have also made a limited quantity available at a deep discount, see details here if you wish to take advantage of this offer.
Please note that we will maintain our customer service Web site and content for all customers. The support site includes detailed explanations for how to accomplish migration to Eyefi Mobi/Mobi Pro and Eyefi Cloud services. We are grateful to all the customers around the world that used Eye-Fi products in the past as well as for our newest customers. The EOL of a product line is always difficult and we have made every effort to minimize the impact of this change on our customers. Thanks for your loyalty and understanding.

Frequently Asked Questions
I just purchased an X2 card, why isn’t it supported?
Eye-Fi began phasing out sales of the X2 product line in 2012. The last version produced by the company were sold through authorized channels in the United States in March, 2015. Although Eye-Fi stopped shipments of these products via authorized channels, some units were still available from third party sellers and after-market resellers. Eye-Fi’s warranty period for the affected products purchased through our authorized channels has expired.
I am still using the same Eye-Fi card after 19 months, but now in a Nikon D610 (with dual SD card slots). It still functions well, for transmitting low-res JPEG files in 5-10 seconds to my Macbook Air laptop, while RAW files are being written to the other SD card/slot in my D610 (for later processing...As noted in other reviews wireless RAW transfer takes too long for me to use it on location). In this way I can within a few seconds take a look at the JPEGs at full-screen size and make sure I have the shot I need for a particular project. I use this setup in the woods, out in the desert, etc. and it functions quite well up to 30 feet (not carefully tested for max range but good enough!) This despite Eye-Fi's somewhat klunky software interface which asks me each time I connect if I want to geotag incoming photos, which I DO NOT. (How about a "do not ask me this again" check box?)
Overall, I'm impressed. I hope my experience setting up the Eye-Fi will help someone else get through it more easily.
This is a sophisticated device for 50 bucks (8 gb version), with many set-up options to be carefully considered depending on your particular needs. These options are selected in the "Eye-Fi Center" software interface and then written to the card (or internet, i.e. Facebook uploading), while the card is inserted in your computer. I did not find setup overly difficult, it's step by step, and the card basically self-updated to the latest firmware the first time I plugged it into my laptop (a MacBook Air). Read the instructions carefully, visit their website also, and you should do fine.
Some things could be made more clear or have more emphasis from Eye-Fi during setup and use. I wished to use the "Direct Mode" whereby the card sets up its own network, to send the images directly to the nearby laptop (or other device you designate in the settings beforehand). My local wireless network, which I had authorized initially with the card to do the firmware update and other online setup, kept getting in the way...If there is a "known" (to Eye-Fi) network around, the direct mode from the card will not start up, in my experience. So you go into the settings (with the card in your computer again) and delete the "known" network so that you can force the card to launch its own network or direct mode every time (if that's what you prefer, some people may not). In other words, if it doesn't recognize any network around, it will launch its own. NOTE: The card will not launch the network until you have turned on the camera and taken a photo. A few seconds later you'll see the card's network appear on your computer network setup and you can then select it. A password, given to you during setup of the card, will be required to access it for the first time.
Frankly I still can't believe that network is coming out of this little SD card in my camera. Pause for a moment and ponder what a technological advance this is compared to that Sony Mavica camera with the floppy drive still sitting in the closet.
At some point, you'll insert the card in the computer again to do a tweak to your settings and wonder where that button or menu is to change the card settings. Look for the tiny cog icon, in the left panel, next to "Eye-Fi Card". I did not find this obvious at all, but it is the access point to all the settings you can use to customize use of the card. A lot of these optional settings require a connection to the internet, so if you've told Eye-Fi to "forget" your local network, you'll have to click the networks tab and connect to the local network again in order to do that (it tells you which ones require internet). While you're in the networks tab, click "Direct Mode" if this interests you, and put both the sliders all the way over to "forever" (having checked the box for "Start the Direct Mode Network"). Otherwise the Direct Mode will cut out at some point (4 minutes or less). I'm way more concerned with STAYING CONNECTED between my camera and the laptop than saving battery power, and this will (apparently) keep the signal from dropping while in Direct Mode.
Once set up, I had no issues at all with shooting/transferring images, except limitations on transfer speeds with RAW files. With Nikon D7100, a RAW file (14 bit) takes about 25-30 seconds to move to the laptop. With 2 SD card slots in the D7100, it is working well for me to have one normal SD card in the camera, recording RAW files (for later download in the traditional way), and another SD card (the Eye-Fi) shooting small JPEGs for review on the laptop. This works great in my testing and should reduce the number of images I shoot overall. The smallest possible JPEG on the D7100 takes only 3-5 seconds to appear on the laptop. The largest, least compressed JPEG takes about 12 seconds. I did not see a major difference between 2 feet and 30 feet (line of sight) in terms of speed, but I dId not try longer distances.
Another tip for Nikon D7000/7100 shooters; Nikon's manual says to set the C-2 menu to 5 min. or longer, this keeps the camera from dropping the direct mode network too soon. It will drain your battery somewhat sooner as the meter stays on that long. Also be sure to access "Eye-Fi Upload" under the Setup Menu on your camera, the card was "enabled" by default when I put it in the camera, but if you have problems this is worth checking.
I've rambled long enough, hope this is of help to you. I will update if problems are encountered in field use.
