”Personal Mobility Gateway (PMG) is the name for a mobile communication unit with wireless remote control, similar to a PDA in form and function. Via PMG, the driver and front passenger can, on one hand, control functions like air conditioning or adjustment of the seat (alternative to using seat switches), steering wheel and exterior mirrors. On the other hand, PMG takes over the entire personal data communication. This includes telephone, high speed internet and email access and control of the MP3 player and the navigation system. The PMG can be removed from the car to serve as a multifunction PDA.’
