    Apparently a Clarion AddZest. But I am not 100% on that. I got it from another forum.

    There is also the Clarion AutoPC Cadius

    edit: did a search on google to find those url details. All in Japanese though, but there are photos.

    If this is the case, i imagine they would have some sort of proprietary system to minimize incompatibility crashing. (ie no real os, just something going into AV/gps/performance). I know alot of the new Toyotas (the 03 Matrix i was looking at) came with a screen built in, in the future, who knows the limits that we will have?

    I saw adverts for in-car systems like those when i was in Japan last year. They were plastered all over the trains (don't know why they'd advertise there though, why would train commuters be interested in car audio systems? they probably don't own a car!)

    They're pretty damn expensive, and they're designed for Japanese driving situations (lots of cars including taxis there have GPS systems because the streets are really hard to navigate). Some of them run on a streamlined version of Windows CE or Windows XP Embedded and they have a proprietory frontend.

    I think some of them had in built DVD players and (i think) dolby digital 5.1 surround outputs... i couldn't read all of it because my japanese sucks...
