GM is dropping the price a grand and is no longer including GPS. That's OK, I can buy a very good GPS for under $100. Hopefully it would still work on the oversized display on the dashboard. Can you also watch the Food Channel while you're driving?

If you want to do Steinbeck, you need the beard.

Have to agree with Jenn--this is a cool project and one I'm sure Brian and "Captain Kirk" will no doubt enjoy.


I'm wondering why GM is  not making GPS standard with subsequent models? I would think onboard systems and electronics would be a key carrot for buyers of this vehicle since even at $40K-plus, it's still pretty pricey and not aimed at the low-end market. Sounds like GM needs to scurry back to the drawing board and work out those kinks--QUICKLY!

Fantastic project

Brian, this is a fantastic project for the company! I recently saw a Volt for the first time as I was driving home from work (in the Lexington, MA office), but it's nice to get a view of the inside of the car I've been reading so much about for the past 3-4 years.

Seems to me, given the criticisms you have, buyers should hold out - it can only get better from here.

Also, when are you bringing the car to Lexington? =)
