http://www.engadget.com/2006/03/01/tomtom-go-910-710-510-gps-units-with-4-inch-widescreen-display/TomTom has updated its Go series of GPS units with three new models, the 910, 710 and 510. At the high end, the 910 comes with maps of Europe, the US and Canada preinstalled, no doubt for those drives from Alaska to Russia across the Behring Strait. It also includes text-to-speech functions and a built-in MP3 player. All three new models come with a 4-inch widescreen touchscreen display, a dock for quick connections to a computer and an optional traffic info receiver. All models will be available in April; pricing has yet to be announced. Oh, and Steve, it'll work with your iPod.
Too bad the On-Star system doesn't have LCD display as they know exactly where you are and how fast you are going at any time. Just a few more pieces of hardware and some firmware and away we go! The firmware could be automatically upgraded as you drive if needed. Who knows? may be an option some day.1994SC2 said:My original plan was to put an aftermarket in-dash navigation and DVD player in to the Sky but after hearing enough horror stories about convertible tops being slashed to get to the good electronics held within I decided to get the premium monsoon and leave it at that. The stand alone systems can be taken out however so I may still consider that.
That is a service they're adding to OnStar. I just like fancy toys, and I'd bet I'm not alone.NCBlue said:Can't you just press the OnStar button and they will help in giving you directions?? Sorry-never had any of these newfangled contraptions-always just stopped at the nearest gas station and asked-obviously I'm not a guy:lol:

I saw this and was tempted but heard that the battery life can be iffy. Has yours been hanging in there?TexSon said:I have a Garmin iQue3600 that is a great PDA/GPS combination. Very accurate GPS, small size but actually a large display, and it is very easy to use the find feature. Just type in the address! Moves quickly from vehicle to vehicle, and will beat just about any dealer system (even gives voice directions), and best yet, just cost me $400!
