Apple Develops New GPS Technology Unit

Every Sunday, the Mac community buzzes with the latest speculative news.

Today, a German publication, Focus, released a brief item suggesting that Apple may be developing a GPS device tailored for vehicles.

According to the report, this new gadget would initially be available solely to Mercedes users for the first half-year before being offered to other automakers.

Could we see an Apple-branded GPS in our vehicles by 2009? While it’s an intriguing thought, it seems more plausible that the upcoming iPhone 2.0 will feature integrated GPS and possibly include a vehicle mount.
