We hope that most users are passengers, not drivers, and we can't see why on earth anyone would want to spend that much money on a product like this.
e don't know why anyone would want to spend over $2,500 to turn their Nintendo DS into a remote control for their car's GPS, but if you have a Toyota and a DS, now you can do so. Well, at least if you live in Japan.
The game is available with a Toyota Smart Navi that costs $2,586, and it's called Kuruda de DS. The game itself costs $92, and you'll also need to spring for a DS.
The Bluetooth-enabled system works as a remote control, using Nintendo Mii characters to guide drivers around. Users can input destinations and also search for tourist info. Users can also save places they've been, use a DS speedometer, take quizzes, and hear sounds from the DS through the car's speakers.
We hope that most users are passengers, not drivers, and we can't see why on earth anyone would want to spend that much money on a product like this. But then, stranger things have sold well.
We'll stick to "regular" GPS systems, thank you very much.Related Vehicles: toyota
