VW, Google May Develop In-car Navigation System

Text from Datamonitor Newswire.
German auto giant Volkswagen and the search engine Google are reportedly working together to develop a prototype navigation system for cars.

10 Jan 2006, 17:18 GMT - At the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Google founder Larry Page said the two companies were aiming to integrate the Google application Google Earth, a 3-D electronic world map, into VW cars.

Google software will allow single images from satellites and aerial photographs to be incorporated into a detailed visual navigation system able to zoom in on buildings.

Volkswagen declined to comment on the alleged cooperation agreement.
