that is nuts!

i donno if i would want it though. that is huge. if i had something in my car that let me know about all that, i would want it to be the size of a small gps system. that's just WAY to in your face. i would get distracted while driving for sure.

I'd be pretty happy if it was covered by insurance though! lol

I'm guessing it's 1 of the screens that you would switch to have different options-I think the  GPS, radio, etc are all on the same system, just different screens.

That is such a pretty screen. So much nicer than the one my pump shows me now... I wonder if we will ever see something like that on a pump, not in a lincoln. But I guess medtronic figures if you can afford the CGMS without insurance you can get a lincoln too.

I wonder if my insurance would cover that car...
