#187776 - let's make a deal

and now Toyota advertise their cars come with 'Bing' not Google, not Yahoo


Obviously, Toyota made a deal with Microsoft, and the user interface part of the entertainment system probably runs Windows Embedded.

Why you need a web browser in a car is beyond me. Upgrading the firmware is probably unpossible.

Please, give me a standalone GPS box (easily upgraded maps) and I'll use my iPhone for web browsing (while my wife drives).
