    If you have never heard of crowd sourced maps, checkout our previous blog post here or an example of a growing Philippine map in timelapse.
    At Nokia world 2009, Navteq announced they will be crowdosourcing map, routing, and traffic data. Twice has a good overview. Also see a recent Google's blog entry about google's crowd sourcing strategy.
    jKontherun reports that iphone users can utilize but aren't contributing to Google's arterial data. Google was quoted as saying “The Google Maps application that comes pre-installed on the iPhone can display live traffic, but Apple devices do not participate in the traffic crowdsourcing.”

  5. Lilliput 7" Canadian Coast Guard Install

    by , 08-14-2009 at 12:37 PM
    Looking to equip your yacht or sailing vessel with a low cost display option? Maybe you want a cost effective solution and don't want to overpay just for the marine stamp on the prodct. You aren't alone. Mp3car outfitted the Canadian Coast Guard vessels with the $239 Lilliput 629 monitors earlier in the year and we thought we would share some photos. These monitors aren't specifically made for marine use, but they do the job in an enclosed wheel house.
