    Google earth is cool. What kind of internet connection do you have that works with google earth? Also, how much is that keyboard gonna hurt when your airbag goes off?

    Airbag can deploy from the negative g force associated with sudden stop in case of an accident so bigger bumper is not going to do you any good. When airbag deploys you don't want that keyboard projected in your chest or stomach area, causing you far more injuries than the accident by itself could cause. Not to mention that your insurance may not even cover you citing tampering with safety equipment....just my 2 cents.

    Does Google earth work well for navigation? If I recall, it will allow you to enter a start and end point, but it won't tell you when to turn like a navigation program. That GOOPs program looks cool, did you make a little 4runner car icon for your's? That would be cool. The T-Mobile internet, is that just through a cell phone? How does the phone connect to the computer? Do you use any phone software for the computer for making/receiving calls? Can you use internet and calls at the same time? It would be cool to use a keyboard that is on the sunvisor... well, it would look cool, but I guess hard to type on... LOL
