    Google earth is cool. What kind of internet connection do you have that works with google earth? Also, how much is that keyboard gonna hurt when your airbag goes off?

      I have t mobile , the itnernet connection works fine for google earth, but its not just google earth its gops tracked with GOOPS, a little plugin for GE., Yeah the airbag thing is an issue at this point, Im getting one of those huge grills on the front so if I hit someone hopfully it wont affect as much, Ive never had an airbag go off on me before, KNock on wood

          Airbag can deploy from the negative g force associated with sudden stop in case of an accident so bigger bumper is not going to do you any good. When airbag deploys you don't want that keyboard projected in your chest or stomach area, causing you far more injuries than the accident by itself could cause. Not to mention that your insurance may not even cover you citing tampering with safety equipment....just my 2 cents.

            Does Google earth work well for navigation? If I recall, it will allow you to enter a start and end point, but it won't tell you when to turn like a navigation program. That GOOPs program looks cool, did you make a little 4runner car icon for your's? That would be cool. The T-Mobile internet, is that just through a cell phone? How does the phone connect to the computer? Do you use any phone software for the computer for making/receiving calls? Can you use internet and calls at the same time? It would be cool to use a keyboard that is on the sunvisor... well, it would look cool, but I guess hard to type on... LOL

                        Keyboard on the steering wheel is s big NO in my book. If the airbag is deployed normally you will most likely end up with a concussion, but you will be alive. It would be sad to die with a big imprint of the ESCAPE key on your forehead.

                        Placing bigger bumpers to prevent the airbag from going off is a big NO as well. Proper installed bigger bumpers will have no impact on the airbag.

                        If you have this view, why not take the airbag out and place the keyboard in that space?
