    No - 3d GPS nav will take a good deal of processing power and a rather large storage drive for larger countries. Currently there is not an option that I'm aware of that's readily avaliable to the mass public.

    There as been talk by Alpine about this for some years. There was a video floating around of a demo of one of their units in Japan.

    btw - I've edited your post to utilize the media player that's built into this site. It's much better than having to click on links and open new windows to view videos.

    3D buildings on GPS displays using Tele Atlas' new 3d masp should be arriving in "All In One" gps devices near the end of the year. I believe MIO showed one of at a trade show in Asia recently, but I can't find the article to reference.

    There technology is definitely there. I have a nearly 2 year old Dell PDA with a 624 Mhz processor and a hardware 3D graphics accelerator (Axim X50v)

    I am not sure if it has already been posted, but I just recently seen some gps with 3d navigation. Has anyone checked out: HP iPAQ 310 Portable GPS Unit

    I watched a video on youtube and it looked really cool.

    Igo 3D demo have been around for ages, and this was running on my old 5-6 years old PDA with 128mb...with no problems.

    Processing power? I guess you never seen Hard Drivin' back in the late 80s? It uses the 68010 + TMS34010 processors, those are dinasours stuff by today standard. The technology is there, but no one has bothered to use it to full since SAT NAV market is relatively new. On top of that, building up the detailed 3D maps is probably the main obstacle they are facing right and that should improve over time. But the processing power of the current technology is definately there... Like what techfire said.
