This is the JATY DR7200 GPS, and it does a lot more than just tell you where you are and how to get where you're going on that 7-inch screen. You see, it's got an integrated breathalyzer, too, so it'll also tell you whether you should even be trying to get where you're going. Blow "over" and you get a standard BAC readout, a red "OVER" warning, and if that's not enough, a yellow skull and crossbones to drive home the point that, well, you really shouldn't be driving at all. In addition to all that, it supports just about every techno-acronym you can imagine (USB, MP3, DiVX, JPEG, MPEG, etc.), so if you're in no shape to drive, you can at least watch a movie on the thing while you wait it out. Want one? Just run on down to the local electronics store...in Korea.

      So who got drunk to get this screen shot?

      .08 BAC is a joke. You can get a DUI for blood pressure medicine, if the police know you have taken any.

        While nobody wants drunks behind the wheel, the .08 number is quite low. When reading the local paper that publishes DWI arrests, it is more common to see 2.0 than .08. This threshold was pushed by elected officials who responded to the influence of the MADD group, and the threatened fallout had they not supported this low number. Mostly, arrests for .08 do little more than blast some poor sap that had a drink or two on the way home from work. The real problem of ACCIDENTS rarely involve drivers with such low levels. All this law did was destroy the bar business.

        I was a poor sap, 6 foot 1 inch, 200lbs. man, who had wine with dinner, and was stopped, and my BAC was .074, and I was arrested, and charged with DUI! This went to trial, and the judge interpreted the law as "ANY" alcohol, or any drug, including prescription medication, will qualify as a DUI, for the terms the jury was to follow. It is all about money, and I I sat through 18 months of court hearings, the same sherriff had arrested almost everyone coming from the same Mexican restauraunt as I was leaving. He was also the only sherriff of the 4 sherriffs in court who had so many DUI's. The other sherriffs were there mainly for speeding, failure to yield, and speed traps.

      Having been to Korea MANY times on business trips, this is hilarious. Everyone drives drunk over there, it seems. A focus group over there I attended had a mid-size sedan owner complain that his car is too difficult to steer accurately when he's drunk...and he said it with a completely straight face!

      When I used to work briefly in Korea, I was a loyal patron of a service... roughly translates to "proxy drivers". You call the service as you're stumbling out of a bar at 2 in the morning, and they send a dude who arrives in as little as 5 minutes. He takes your key and puts you in the back seat of your car and drives you home. He walks you to your front door, gives you your key back, and then takes the bus back to the office. It cost about 4~5 times as the equivalent taxi ride, and I don't have to abandon my car. I must've used the service at least once a week for the 2 years I was there. I wish we had a service like that in LA.

        Top Gear showed such a service in London didn't they?

      Why doesn't someone invent a nav system that gives you the location of all nearby police cars. They have transponders, don't they? Shouldn't be too difficult.

        Want to get a warning where the police are. Get a good radar detector. In Massachusetts most town police cars have a radar unit on all the time. Even when there driving down the road they check the speed of the on coming car.
        Then your detector will sound when there near you.

      Be careful. It has become law that a "black box" data base from the computer in your own car can be used in court to convict you of charges such as speeding in the event of an accident. If this equipment is installed in your car, it to may be subject to simular court sopena for a conviction of DWI. Here in New York, you don't have to be driving to be convicted of DWI. Many have been convicted while parked and asleep in their own back seat! Mere posession keys while in "proximity" of the car is enough for conviction.
