3 D Auto Mapping On the Horizon

Today, if you go into Best Buy or Sam’s Club you see the opportunity to buy mapping systems for cars (at a high price). I had a friend who had one of those gps systems and although he rarely left Lynchburg he was ready to cruise to parts unknown. Two weeks after he got the thing though, his car was broken into and now it’s gone.

Now, Volkswagen and Google maps have gotten together and they have made an innovative step.

"This new system uses data from Google Earth to generate 3-dimensional images of the route. Moreover, the navigation system can gather online data to provide the driver with important real-time information, for example about the traffic situation or weather. " From AutoMotoPortal
