    Default Slot-In GPS System

    Sounds very interesting, could be a good upgrade if the headunit is of a good quality

    Eclipse/TomTom Slot-In GPS System

    The Eclipse AVN2210 is an unusual solution that has arisen from TomTom's Embedded navigation offering announced earlier. Put simply it is a double-Din car stereo radio/CD that has a built-in removable TomTom GPS that appears to be based on a ONE.

    CD/Radio functions can be operated from the touch screen on the navigation display and the TomTom operates as a GPS navigation system in the normal way. When you get to your destination you can pop the TomTom out of the dash. You can even use it in this mode if you wish. Initially available for OEM install by US manufacturers it is believed to be coming to European shores later this year.

    Nice idea, but it's so ugly I'd rather nail a dead warthog to my dashboard.....

    As a first go it is aweful.. Great Concept though and the functionality was pretty hot too. Perhaps Mk2 or 3 will look a little more refined.
