||//Seems doable. Someday.// Just a matter of will in the car industry. I have a stupid RPM meter that takes up about 1/3 of my instrument panel, prime display real estate. It could be replaced by a multi function LCD or plasma display. Also useful for warnings instead of cryptic symbols. Drivers who want to be sure that their engine is running before they hit the gas could still lock it on RPM.
||I'd rather see it done with voice. If the number is in your contacts list, the name would be announced, if not, the numbers could be spoken. Add a feature that allows you to accept or deny the call by voice and I'll order one.
