Take me to the pilot.


The Micro Road Pilot. The world’s smallest GPS road safety system. Road safety in this context means avoiding speeding tickets, of course. But you knew that didn’t you? Oh, and for all you colonist heathen, that’s a pound coin you’re looking at. Majestic isn’t it? £399.95 ($699.91). 

 The Micro RoadPilot doesn’t just deal with the standard speed cameras – it can help you if you break down too. Not sure where you are? The Pilot’s RescueME positioning guide shows you your coordinates to give to rescue services. The Micro RoadPilot also warns you when you’re approaching London congestion charge zones.

Take me to the pilot.

Is this a case of a little too little, a little too late? The VCR Co-Pilot – ‘If you can tell the time, you can program your VCR’. Where were these guys for all those decades when 12:00 was remorselessly flashing on machines across the globe? And now they arrive, when the VCR is finally going dodo? Around $29.95.

‘The VCR Co-Pilot…uses graphical slide switches and analog dials. The familiar metaphor of a clock face makes it intuitive. Slide switches set the record day and AM/PM and dials set the start and stop times. An LCD screen shows the current time as well as all settings as they are being made and a review button lets users check the final settings.’

Take me to the pilot…

Blaupunkt has just released the Travelpilot E1 [PDF], which is a super compact CD, radio and vehicle navigation system the size of a conventional car stereo head unit. Priced at £599.99.

‘In addition to the ‘fast’ and ‘short’ route options offered by earlier models, the TravelPilot E1 also allows the driver to select ‘optimum route’. This option takes both distance and time into consideration giving the driver the smartest route to their destination. It is also possible to play audio CDs while navigating because the E1 stores the necessary data once the route has been calculated.’
