Getting lost with the AVIC-D2

Los Angeles is big.? Really big.? Huge even.? It's not even really a city as much as it is a county.? Los Angeles County is something like 140 miles end-to-end and houses more cities, towns and villages than most other states.? I'm from New York, and say what you will about getting around in that city but at least all of the streets run east ? west and north ? south.? Not in L.A..? If I didn't know better, I would have thought that the civil engineers who laid out L.A. were smoking the good stuff.?

Anyway, L.A. is big and confusing, especially for someone from New York.? So when Pioneer asked that we review their AVIC-D2 navigation system, I jumped at the chance to not be lost in L.A. any longer.

Mitsubishi president Osamu Masuko made the announcement during the annual dealer's meeting, where he confirmed the lithium-ion powered vehicle will be available first in Japan and then the U.S. soil.

Funny that they chose to make this announcement in Sin City, where more electricity is burned per square foot than in other city in the world.

A 3-year old named Jack Neal recently bought a pink Nissan Figaro for nearly $16,000 on eBay.

It seems while lil' Jack's mother's back was turned, the tyke jumped on the computer and scored the whip.

"I had just come off the computer and I thought I had logged off, I came out of eBay," his mother Rachel of Sleaford, England said. "Jack jumped on the chair, (went) straight in, found the page and bought the car."

He can't read, apparently, but knew that clicking on that shiny "Buy Now" button would surely lead to good things.

Mark your calendars all you eco-loving celebrities and get ready to start selling your hybrids, because the next-gen car will be upon us in 2008.

Honda has announced that they will be selling the FCX Concept car with limited sales in both the U.S. and Japan. What makes this car so special you ask? It is the first fuel cell car to hit the U.S. mainland and the consuming public.

For those that don't understand what this leap will bring, it could make the ever-increasing-their-profits gas companies drop their prices dramatically realizing they are about to be outdated. Fuel cell technology has been touted as the hybrid's future and was not foreseen for some time due to the cost, the placement of the fuel cell itself and the lack of speed.

Honda's FCX has handled those problems by placing the fuel cell pack between the driver and the passenger and technological improvements allowing for it to go over 100mph.

The cost....well, that one ain't fixed, but hybrids started out over-priced, right?

And since Europeans can currently only score themselves a Lotus Elise, Exige, or Europa S (North America don't get no Europa), these new cars will indeed accomplish that.
