USTelematics, a company whose sole purpose in today’s marketplace is to create “wired” technologies for next-generation cars, will adding a GPS upgrade to the Voyager in-car Mobile Internet Protocol TV in order to integrate Microsoft’s MSN Autos Gas Price Finder. Car owners with the Voyager TV system will now be able to find the closest, cheapest has prices in real time.
This is undoubtedly a super handy feature in an economy where gas prices are through the roof, but of course consumers will pay extra for the added feature. With the press of an on-screen button, the driver’s location will be fed to MSN Autos online gas price database and a popup window will appear on the Voyager’s screen with a listing of the nearest refueling stations and their prices. The window minimizes itself after a couple of minutes.
Adding the GPS upgrade does cost, but beyond that there is no extra cost to use the service beyond the obvious EVDO broadband subscription cost. Head over to MSN Autos for demo of how you can find local, real-time gas prices.
