Of course, this is for the true nerds among us out there, but it is still pretty cool that someone figured out how to do this.

yet anyways, just a simple test program for the GPS part of it. What will be cool is when someone writes a user friendly and useful interface. Still, you would have to be able to use a computer to run it, not nearly as easy as an OEM type unit. And I don't think a Cadillac owner would do that (they are too old, and don't even know how to write an email). ;-)<br><br><b><span style="color: rgb(204, 0, 0);">My Videos and Links Page: </span></b><A HREF="http://members.roadfly.org/melmyers12/">http://members.roadfly.org/melmyers12/</a><img src="http://members.roadfly.org/melmyers12/getmecoat.gif">

...that would let you plug in a pocket PC to it perhaps. With appropriate positioning information and map data, it would make a relatively inexpensive GPS system. You can get a nice full-color high-end Pocket PC or Palm Pilot for $500 or less. Add, say, another $100 or $200 for software and an interface kit, and you have a cool toy.

Yeah, I know it really isn't commercially viable, but the geek in me still thinks it is cool.
