    Nothing mentioned about an interface though, or even screenshots of their previous work with Macs. Maybe fluff? you decide and give your two cents :-)

    correct me if I'm wrong, but a DIN slot is 1.5 inches high. Unless you hack away at the dashboard, you can't stuff a 2 inch high computer in there. But thats not the real challenge (unless they make a dock for it...) I want to see how they mount the LCD in the vehicles. I'm assuming that #1 its going to be expensivo, #2 its going to be high-quality, looking at the work that they do w/ cars.
