In my previous car I installed a 7" flat tv screen and cordless trackball. These were connected to a laptop in the boot. I ran MS AutoRoute which did not give spoken directions but there is newer software available now. A GPS sits on your rear parcel shelf. With this box of tricks plus a tv tuner, I could watch tv and DVDs, do navigation and send and receive faxes etc. on the move. If I was doing it again I would install a wireless LAN in the car so the car could download webpages {newspapers} and DVDs from my house computers.
It isn't a project for the faint hearted but a navigation system is so very expensive and limited in its functionality. My computer gear was lying idle at the time and it worked very well. I ran the audio to the stereo through a cd multichanger.

I don't plan on sticking it into my W140 because I don't spend much time in traffic. I would be very interested in cruise controls mounted on the right hand side of the steering wheel though.
