    I just saw this on gizmodo.com. It looks pretty sweet.....and they're running it on macs. It doesn't really go into much detail, but how do you think this is possible and what software do you think they are using? Please make any coment. Thanks.

    Theres no special software, they are just running a navigation program i.e. route 66, and a webcam program. They don't actually send any data through the web connection, only suggest it.

    Yeah, I saw something about that on carputers.org. It looks very similar to something that Frodo is working on.
    Check out my carputers:
    DVD, GPS, MP3, 6.4" LCD Touchscreen, 5" Headrest LCDs, PSone, DSSC, etc.
