    getting there....
    that looks cool as hell.....but i gotta be honest, unless you have a passenger using the gps.......that would be pretty dangerous, especially in traffic trying to operate it yourself. its rather small. other than that.....looks pretty awesome.

    It does look cool, but I agree that it looks like a dangerous place for GPS.

    I find that looking at my rear-view mirror takes my eyes (and attention) further from the road than looking down at my guages. I have a Garmin Nuvi that I've mounted so that it's suctioned to the windshield just above the dash in the left corner (above the tacometer). That may have been a bit off topic, so...

    It does look pretty damn cool!

    It's not much smaller than a Garmin Nuvi (4.3" screen for the Nuvi, 4" for this unit).

    It is pricey though. It looks like it can integrate with a backup camera too. Very cool.
