    it basicly does everything the average carputer does.
    has a cool screen that changes what you see based on the angle you look at it.

    That's unbelievably cool but also unbelievably expensive...

      yeah, the price is way too high for a closed system.
      i believe this is somewhat the future of carputers for the average person though.
      I heard about the lcd screen they are using a while ago, cant remember who makes it, but they were gearing it for regular TV in the living room, where people can watch two shows at the same time.
      They seemed to have intergrated it fairly quickly.
      Although the tech is pretty cool, i dont know if i want to be limited to only viewing certain screens (GPS) while in the driver seat.

            Toshiba makes the screen, and it is impressive how fast it was integrated. Even though the price is high, with this kind of tech i am surprised they were able to put any kind of pricetag on it at all.
            I agree with your sentiment about being limited viewing while driving, but i can just imagine all the manufacturers jumping at the opportunity for factory systems. thats still better than factory locked gps system that does not let you input any new directions on the move, may be this would allow at least the passenger to put new directions in while driving
            I have found you an argument; I am not obliged to find you an understanding.

                then it's a good thing you didn't choose any toyota/lexus. with all the paranoia about gps/video screens, i am surprised that anyone lets you do that on the move.

                  BMW has a disclaimer for that the rest is up to you, in germany versions this disclaimer dosent exist. Maybe the germans are more responsible then us americans. They do block TV viewing whilist driving but a simple device bypasses that.

                    Same in my friends new C6 corvette. Best looking multimedia GUI I've seen so far. A feature I like about his GPS (I'm sure it's common in most navigation systems now) is that it automatically blocks out letters that can't come after the letter you just typed, like lets say you are trying to type in the street: Meridian, well once you hit 'M' it will show only the letters that can possibly go after M, and so on. I thought it was pretty neat, maybe it could be integrated into MapMonkey!

                      As the owner of a 2009 Z06, I assume you're referring to the U3U Navigation. What a total POS that is. Maybe if you've never seen a navigation system and didn't care about user friendliness, it could be construed as a decent system. My experience with GPS systems is fairly diverse... OEM Toyota, OEM Acura, OEM GM, Garmin Nuvi, and TomTom (various). Although I won't go into detail in this thread, the U3U from strictly a navigation point of view, has several points of total "fail". The biggest being the intuitiveness of the menus and buttons. Without a manual nearby (that includes a good legend), you won't get to where you're going. The number of steps required to get a route entered and going is absurd. As far as options while moving? Only one... kill the route. Everything else is grayed out until you come to a stop and wait about 2-3 seconds. As far the U3U's ability outside of navigation... even worse. Bluetooth (or lack of) is a total joke, MP3 playback is a joke, XM station selection is the worse joke of all. Bad all around. Loaded, my car cost over $80K and it's a real shame what they have for a "top end" head unit.

                      Yes, every unit listed above behaves in this same manner.
