BIG IN 2008 – 3D sat-nav

Welcome to our showcase of the hottest tech for 2008 – are you ready for the future?Your standard TomTom might have so-called 3D mapping, giving

Your standard TomTom might have so-called 3D mapping, giving you a virtual horizon line, but you still ‘drive’ along a seemingly flat and featureless landscape. Paff, we say.

We want isometric renders of city landmarks and road height representations. We want to look out of the window and see in the real world what our sat-nav is showing us on its LCD screen.

We’ve already seen Mio’s first attempts at proper 3D maps over at IFA back in August. The rest will surely follow.

We’re booked in for a chinwag with Mio over at CES in Vegas so if three-dimensional cartography is on its way to our sat-navs soon, you’ll be the first to know about it.
