From the writers at Car and Driver magazine:
Rand McNally used the Chicago show to introduce a digital device called OverDryve, a dashboard tablet that not only fulfills navigation functions, but also hands-free phone calls and text-to-speech.
The key elements of the system are a GPS antenna, backed by a GPS chip embedded in the tablet, to ensure satellite connectivity. There’s also a cord that connects to the vehicle’s radio (no satellite stations), as well as a speaker integrated with the tablet that’s rated for 3 watts, roughly triple the wattage of the average smartphone speaker, we’re told.
A tire-pressure-monitoring system (TPMS) function, entailing a glovebox-located transmitter and valve-stem pressure gauges, is available as an option for $149, and there’s also a rearview camera option.
