In-Steering Wheel Navigation


naviwheel.jpgThe In-Steering Wheel Navigation takes in-dash navigation to the next level, doing away with the need for a large display for obvious reasons but featuring a list of functions that might actually be crazy enough to be the next big thing. The In-Steering Wheel Navigation uses a computer that is connected to a central unit in your car, warming the driver of various potential hazards such as an opened door or low-tire pressure through the steering wheel. It is also compatible with the Navigon 7100 GPS navigation system, relaying important information to the 12 o’clock position on the steering wheel. In addition, the on-board sensors will enable the Navigon 7100 to gauge speed accurately, direction and the attitude of the vehicle. Which do you think is safer – glancing at the steering wheel or the dashboard?

I think while driving on a freeway, the 12 o’clock spot is perfect, but for driving in the city, where I probably need gps info, the steering wheel gets turned a lot more than it stays straight.

What happened to windshield HUDs? That’s got to be the safest option.
