Hi all.
It's a awfully hot day here in Tokyo so I did this project in twilight time...
anyway, check this out.



I don't know whether your country has a Car Navigation software of SONY PSP, we do have some GPS-related software line-ups in Japan.

It's the screen view.


First of all, the way I attach is experimentally-established method.
I attached the PSP holder to the flyscreen with a powerful adhesive disc LOL



It looks no good but easy install. I'm now planning to upgrade the method.

But it's looking cool in nighttime and I really love it.

I was totally unaware that the PSP can do navigation. That's awesome.

Kakkou ii desu!

Now if you could only do it with a DS. That would be pretty damn cool with the touch screen.

Hi. you know nice Japanese idiom which I like most:D

There's a engineer in my country who attached a GPS unit to DS and linked to Google maps. I'm looking foward to see it commodificated!

touch screened navigation device is the best option for us scooter riders

I knew someone had done it.

Now just to wait for a actual product from nintendo...

Yea, i spent 3 months in japan about 4 years ago. I loved it and wish i could go back sometime soon. I spent most of the time in tokushima and about a week in osaka.

wow, that's awesome. i was considering doing something similar with my blackberry, but my screen in much smaller than a PSP. so, i'm not sure if it's worth it.

thanks. blackberry sounds cool too. We don't look at the screen while we're driving, right? so I guess there's no probrem with the small screen. but I think reflection of the sunlight is the biggest probrem for those colour screened devices. anyway, go with blackberry!!

thanks. as I said above, I don't look at the screen while driving.so it doesn't distracting. and I jack in the ear phone to PSP and listen to the "voice guidance" while I'm driving. the timing I look into the PSP screen is at "signal stop". the screen is big and I must say it doesn't go with the LX design indeed... but it's useful by now.[/quote]
