Google Earth for VW Car Navigation Demo

Last week CNET, one of my favorite online technology information resources, released a video review of Volkswagen’s technology demonstration of a navigation system which uses a custom version of Google Earth with a touch screen interface. You can watch the video review here. The demonstration shows some pretty nice features including touch screen manipulation of panning, stored routes, the classic GE “fly to” mode, and searching for restaurants with description bubbles. The VW demonstration technology was first publicly demonstrated during the Google’s CES Keynote last January.
