Description

If you live in North America you can now get access to MSN Direct services on a selection of Garmin Satellite Navigation devices with more coming soon.

MSN Direct is a service that delivers traffic conditions, fuel prices, weather data, and more over parts of the unused FM spectrum via Microsoft Directband technology.

Want to see the service in action? Check out the demo of MSN Direct we were given at the Microsoft CES 2008 booth.

Alpine and Pioneer will also be bringing out MSN Direct compatible devices in 2008. For more info check out http://www.msndirect.com

      MSN Direct would be an awesome feature to include in my Zune subscription.

      It would be great to see carriers outside of North America offer these services as well. I'm assuming this would require someone to bid on the unused FM spectrum in said countries to start broadcasting the service.

      This is the same technology that was/is in the SPOT watches from a few years back...

      Would be neat if there were some more Live Maps integration. Like 3D cities and the works.
