The intersection of MySpace and GPS

Honda's new GPS system

Honda has taken GPS navigation systems into the realm of social networking. The automaker says its latest subscription-based offering, called Internavi Premium Club, will come with built-in real-time weather and travel information, as well as a function that will enable drivers to tag points of interest with their own comments.

The social-networking element of service will let drivers post and access reviews about restaurants, for example, harnessing the "wisdom of crowds" in a similar way to that of many Web 2.0 applications. The bad news is that it looks like a Japan-only option for the foreseeable future.
