The detailed maps are very nice. I am a guy that usually figures out my direction based on sight like buildings.
As for distraction, they will probably keep it at a low level for the front driver screen. They could add some screens to the head rests so the kids can play games in the back with headphones.
It looks like Nvidia is expanding their client market. I don't blame them, the next step for cars have always been for them to be cleaner, more efficient, and smarter machines than they are now. If the cars have smarter computers then we are allowed more options for them, of course right now they will be really expensive since none are being massed produced.
But the car of the future....like in 10 years....will basically have integrated computers with the already onboard computers that monitor the car. Every vehicle will be equipped with WiFi capabilities, so you don't even have to leave your car. Next thing you know Sonic will be offering WiFi so people will drive up and browse the web while they wait on their food.
Speaking of cars though, it doesn't surprise me that a international company would do this, especially Audi since they produce some really good vehicles. I think that the true scale terrain thing will really help people with navigation, because it helps them locate landmarks easier. And well, some people can't look at a 3 inch screen and scale distances very efficiently.
I knew that navigation would go tech loco sooner or later. We've now evolved from having just a mapquest style interface, to basically a good earth. The computer for this car is really nice though, it's essentially a multi media center, better than just a radio in my opinion.
Audi have produce their cars with hitech components! Every car that drives today are filled with electronic components that aids the driver to its destination. Navigation systems have become common on all road cars especially in Europe and North America where GPS are highly successful in guiding the drivers. It is not just the navigational system that is highly technological on an Audi made car. The engine itself is guided with electronic devices that makes the car fuel efficient to cover more distances with its fuel allotment it adjusts Audi Performance Parts to save more fuel and run smoothly too. But having an NVIDIA on a car is much more different which means it will process more data to keep you on the road and keep you connected to the world wide web.
