  1. The Garmin thing looks nice, but appears to only be for car manufacturers to build into new cars. No one really seems to care about existing cars and we do keep them for longer so this is a big market as whatever cars came with new will be rapidly outdated even a few years later.

    Parrot is one company that has tried to address the installed base – eg the Asteroid http://www.parrot.com/usa/products/asteroid-range – but reviews for the products are somewhat negative complaining about poor software.
