    BMW's Mini PDA Installation

    Pretty cool stuff. BMW has a stock option now (don't know how old this is) to install a PDA in the car. It plays mp3s, and even has dynamic volume control. Pretty cool little device.

    you'll be paying too much. The plus, it has gps and mobile phone.

    if you buy a bmw, you are already paying too much

    the ibus system though is insanely cool, and having a system with a variable volume based on accelleration is beyond awsome

    Hey that's not bad actually- I thought it would be just another pda, but it's packed with quite a lot of features and everything's integrated. I like how you can phone an operator for restaurants, then press a button to get a map and directions! I don't like how you have to have to have their choice of pda though- if you already have a phone, then you'll just end up with two. Also, I think you can achieve pretty much most of the features with a home-brew project and then some.... PDA's are still too big to be carrying round though- and if you're mounting something like that in the car, you might as well get a 7 inch touch screen. Integrated email's nice though- perhaps ME could now incorporate simple (non-outlook) client into a future release....??
