    From looking at the screen, I see the Internet Explorer Icon. Guess it has wireless net or something... that would be a good feature.

    Ya i think they said wireless was through sprint but i can see this being a great tool for the larger companies out there as far as relaying jobs that are done and billing information and also tracking your workers. I am a solo op but i think it could still bennifit me by being able to remotely access my home comp and record work as it is finished. Looks like a great idea as long as the software works flawlessly which technology is not always known to do

    It sure does look nice, but I don't know that I'd be willing to pay for it !!

    Sounds like 50k in debt that could easily be avoided.

    There is a demo video on youtube I was watching this morning. It will have full enternet access thru intergrated sprint mobile and Microsoft Mobile software. Comes with a wireless keyboard and I think printer. USB port and video card slot on front. Also the guy in the video said you would be able to sync up via gotomypc.com with your home computer. Basically make your truck a moble office. My dealer confirmed they will have a retro fit kit for the 2008 too.

    Would the retrofit kit just adapt a factory nav system to run all the other goodies?
