Bose dashboard mount does music, GPS

updated 10:45 am EST, Fri March 9, 2007

Bose Media System

Bose forthcoming Media System is a dash-mounted system that combines GPS and music functions, with a stronger emphasis on the latter. It can for instance play CDs and FM or XM radio, but more importantly, it has a 30GB hard drive which can store up to 200 hours of audio. Users can also connect and control devices such as phones and iPods using Bluetooth or USB 2.0. The primary control scheme is a pair of proximity-sensitive dials -- as users move their hand to one or the other, the dash automatically switches interfaces. It also sorts music (songs and stations) by genre for faster selection. No pricing or release dates have been set, except that the first car to use it will this year's Ferrari 612 Scaglietti.
