Earlier this month, we told you about GM's plan to use Sharp's dual-view LCD display technology on its navigation systems. But it appears ToMoCo has beat GM to the punch. Toyota unveiled its dual-purpose navigation/entertainment unit on the Alphard — a minivan sold in Asian markets. The system allows the driver to look at the navigation while the passenger watches a DVD at the same time. Frankly, we can care less who offered it first, it's just such a cool gadget we can't wait til it becomes adopted as an industry standard.
