Final Day Korea Trip March 2009: Back to the States

I'm headed back to the states. After a week traveling across Seoul multiple times, I'll miss the private drivers. What also stands out is the Korean car navigation system. They are quite advanced--much more than in the U.S. For one, most track traffic conditions real time. What I really like is an expected arrival time that constantly is updating.

What may surprise folks is that integrated into the nav system is local TV and something similar to on-demand movies. That means that the driver can watch their favorite TV while driving. This can be a little scary in heavy Seoul traffic traveling at high speeds. I'm shocked there are not more accidents....

  1. Forgot to mention, the Kia Soul stands out. It's not your typical Korean car.
    For one, it's not silver or black ( seen as status colors). Next, it's unique and not trying to emulate other success models.

    Check the launch of Soul in the states.
