    It's already available in Audi's SUV Q5 and is called Audi MMI 3G
    One can surf the net and get videos and music from various sources.
    The highlight is the accompanying navigation system based on Google Maps.
    With the help of the Tegra-Chips one can display routes in 3D, plus you
    have Google Earth.

    PS. I am not interested - just want to drive with no distractions that may
    cause fatal accidents. Why would someone driving a Lamborghini want this ?
    The driving experience is surely the 'ultimate' high - watch the damn videos
    at home !

    So, you're driving a Lambo?
    P.S. Nothing as funny as a SA saying I'm driving a red ferrari :)
    My mate at work is from SA and does that to make us laugh.

    Huh ? Nah, you can't drive anything fancy here - those have no ground clearance to speak of. Potholes and speed-humps. Then there's Finster's Law which comes into play when you think that your baby will not be stolen, scratched in the mall parking lot etc. I think there are more SUV's and pick-ups here than anywhere else.
    (Roadster that would suit me best is the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG gullwing, a must drive before cashing in my chips. Think it would suit you too despite ground clearance, and I trust, sans Tegra_Chips) :D
