GPS with internet connectivity.
Ok, so they cay "the power of the internet" but don't specify how it connects (I assume via satcom using the GPS patch antenna to a leased transponder with limited packet transfer requirement). The traffic data, in a perfect world it would work as they say...my questions are what is their source for this traffic data....where is the data available...because you know they don't have it for everywhere. So, it is basically working like the Acura NAV system with and XM radio traffic data connection....once again limited data availability in major metro areas.

My conclusion: YAWN.

I'm a tech toy geek, but this doesn't excite me. Revise the design to use my mobile phone as a 3G modem for real internet connectivity, tethered via bluetooth then we'll talk.
