|Topic: Maps, Map Software, & GPS Units|
|If you have
a laptop computer that you can take on the road with you, one of the
best things you can buy for your sport utility vehicle is mapping
software and a GPS unit that interfaces with that software (see caution
about use, below, in red).
The top photograph shows our SUV with the laptop computer mounted just forward of the center console. You can see at a glance where you are to within a few feet!
The attached GPS unit (on the dash in the lower photograph) constantly feeds location information to the computer program.
WARNING: This setup can be very distracting to the driver of a vehicle. Playing with program settings and looking at the screen while driving down the road can lead to a serious accident because of driver inattentiveness. It may even be illegal in some states for the screen to be visible to the driver. Install the system such that is viewed and managed by passengers and not the driver. Never divert your attention from the task of driving to your laptop computer.
