2008 CES roundup
We round up the highlights of our Car Tech coverage of 2008 CES.
We've been overwhelmed by all the automotive tech announcements and new products at CES. During our first day, we've seen new car stereos and GPS devices, new services from both XM and Sirius satellite radio, and Ford's play to be the carmaker most talked about at the show. Here are a sampling of blogs we've posted from 2008 CES:
A new trend in GPS devices lets you enter destinations with spoken commands. The Garmin Nuvi 800 is one of the first to offer this capability.
A new all-in-one double DIN head unit from Eclipse offers media playback, navigation, and Bluetooth cell phone integration.
Blaupunkt offers a plug-and-play amp that's easy to install, yet adds better amplification and sound quality than most factory installed systems.
New services from XM satellite radio include weather reports, gas prices, and flight times.
Sirius Travel Link brings a bundle of new services to Ford's new navigation system, including traffic, weather, gas prices, and movie times.
