Mirror Pilot

Car GPS units are ugly if they aren't standard equipment. The Mirror Pilot looks good because the cables and suction cups are gone, and everything is embedded in the rear view mirror. MirrorPilot uses Antaris with two and three dimension maps, voice and message channels. No more charging, no more locking up the GPS to stop thieves.

Implications - There are already so many distractions on the road that it's no surprise that brands are making these rearview mirror-embedded GPS devices. Hybrid products like this are becoming more appealing to the convenience-hungry consumer, as two-in-one types of technology not only offer space-saving qualities, but also practicality and handiness in hectic, distracting schedules.
