    Talking Sony debuts Linux-based in-car nav / infotainment line in Japan

    Sony debuts Linux-based in-car nav / infotainment line in Japan
    [i]Source: LinuxDevices.com[/b]

    Sony introduced three Linux-based in-car navigation and infotainment devices in Japan today. The NV-XYZ 33, 55, and 77 feature 3D map navigation technology, media players, hard drives, GPS, and PC connectivity. And they are based on a Linux 2.4-series kernel.

    Pic of nav interface:

    The 3D mapping interface shows actual buildings, and knows street addresses, enabling it to identify destination addresses. In the picture at right, it has identified a gas station belonging to a promotional partner. Advertising for many other businesses, such as fast food outlets, appears to be built into the maps.

    *drools* Maps only available for some parts of Japan though. Man, those Japanese come up with the best stuff!
