Google in Car

Google, again pushing beyond the browser, announced (per a story in MediaPost per Forbes) that it would be working with Volkswagen to develop an automotive nagivation system based on Google Earth:

VOLKSWAGEN AG AND GOOGLE HAVE entered into a deal to develop a prototype navigation system for cars, according to a report Monday. The prototype will reportedly integrate the search giant's satellite mapping product, Google Earth, into VW's cars.

That probably puts Google in direct competition with one of its partners, Tele Atlas.
