Taxis in the near future

If I pay for time in a taxi I don't expect him to spend that time being lost. This is an area some taxi companies are hoping to fix. I was in a limo a couple days ago and he had something special with him:

It's a series 9000 MDT mobile data dispatch terminal offered by Mobile Knowledge. It's powered by an Intel XScale Processor running Microsoft Windows CE.NET. Benefits to us riders is GPS to watch where you're going, integrated magnetic card swipe to reduce credit card fraud, and integrated Taxi Meter for a more accurate charge based on distance not on time.

oOo! I might need one. I'm so terrible when it comes with directions. :/ Or maybe I am just one of those girls who are better at landmarks. :P
