CarNav: "Guidance will now commence. Please proceed to the designated route."

C: "Activate Avatar"

CarNav: "She's not feeling well today.."

C: "Don't bullshit me.. she's an avatar for Fuck's sake. Project it or I'll turn you off."

Avatar (appears, stamps foot and pouts): "You were SO rude to me last time.."

C: "Well, stop back seat driving.."

Avatar: "Consul, I'm a navigation tool. You're supposed to listen to me and do what I say. Turn right in 200 meters."

C: "I've told you and your GPS mate a thousand times..that way takes about five minutes longer."

Avatar: "Well adjust your road preferences you stubborn old fart."

C (swats avatar with rolled up newspaper): Don't you 'stubborn old fart ' me!.."

etc.

       Please don't make me get nasty on my first day back.

       I didn't say you were nasty, thank you for your welcome, and I reject your legitimacy and substitute my own.

       One could project the hologram into a 5 inch dash mounted block of frosted Lexan, using lasers positioned circumferentially around the block. Monochrome would be easiest, but might not do Barbie justice.

       You could do a HUD on the windshield without the need for holograms.

       I've already got something cute but annoying that tells me where to turn, why would I want this?
