    Well the TT is a Portable Navigation Device right? This setup is trying to integrate it.

    i'm not knocking it at all. I mean if I had my choice of NAVigation it would definately be a TomTom.

    I guess i need more coffee to make better sense... brb

    I think the pictured setup blows, to tell you the truth. Too squared off, and feels like it's just mashed together. What happens if TT breaks or gets lost? Now you have a gaping hole in your dash. I just think that this is too forced of a concept.

    I don't know if thats just a beta unit. But the thing is butt ugly! The unit as a whole that is.

    Maybe they are now trying to compete with the built-in NAVs? I see that the TT Duo pops out thus could be called "portable".... and maybe this solution is perfect for someone who uses their TT in mainly one car. But I'll stick with my ONE, thank you very much!

    Yes, I believe that is what they are trying to do, compete with built-in NAV's. I like how they are trying to integrate the PND to the audio system but I think the design is a bit bulky imho.

    Nice pics though.

    Yeah, I like the integration with the radio, you have to believe that the TT instructions would be broadcast over your radio's speakers with this setup.

    Popular Mechanics give the Eclipse Editor's choice award.

    I'm all TomTom, but I don't think it's fair.;)

    I was reading through the FAQ on the Fujistsu (Eclipse) website and one of the questions was if there was something that can be put in place of the portable TomTom unit when it's removed. The answer was yes. There is an optional piece that can be put there to act as a cover when the TomTom unit is not being used.

    That at least is ok. I remember thinking about the hug void in the middle when you take the device out.
