What's the best wifi SD card for use with the Q7?

Ordered me a Q7, and I'd really like to have wifi transfer of all my photos to my iPhone. What's out there? Must be a fast card, I take a lot of RAW photos!

Bonus points if it works in a Pentax K-01, K-30, or an original Q....

Double bonus points if any of these cameras can manipulate the card settings via menus in the camera.

This was the fastest wi-fi SD card that I could find:
Toshiba FlashAir 4th Generation SD Wifi SDHC / SDXC memory card - 16GB (OEM Pack): Industrial & Scientific

Any card that works with the Q7 would also work with other cameras.

There are no cards can do this (except for the Pentax O-FC1 when paired with the K-3, K-3 II, K-S1, or 645Z).

Well, now that I have a Q7 in front of me, there is a menu setting to turn on and off an Eye-Fi card. So it looks like an Eye-Fi is what I'll be getting.

How are you liking the WiFi card with the Q?

Edit: googling around it seems the Eye-Fi company has gone out of business some time ago. Is there a killer feature that still makes it better to buy an old stock eye-fi vs a new Toshiba Wi-fi SD card that is widely available today?

Toshiba actually bought the Eye-Fi company, that's why the only wifi enabled SD cards available at the moment are Toshiba. However the reviews are pretty mediocre to bad.

I had an Eye-Fi card awhile back that ended up getting discontinued before the company went bankrupt. It never worked all that well IMO. I also have the W4 Toshiba card and find that that one actually works a little better. You don't need the on/off function with the Toshiba as it can be set to turn off after x amount of time after the camera turns on. That saves battery power. You can also browse the pictures a little easier with the Toshiba card. Most annoying thing about it is I haven't found a way to select multiple files for download when browsing with a computer. Neither are as nice as a camera with built in Wifi but are better than nothing if you want that functionality. I use the W4 in an original x100.

I have along neglected eye-fi X2 connect card that I wanted to resurrect just now. Trouble is, it needs online services to “register” it again (at some point I must have done a clean format of the card on my PC). Those online services are now defunct, so I’m pretty much stuffed getting any of the WiFi functionality back. The eye-fi setup rigmarole was never fun when it was new. My advice is to steer clear of buying any new-old stock of eye-fi.

Still works as an plain SD card though...
