Mercedes interiorSo it breaks down like this.  You purchase your Google Glass(es?).  Perhaps you are an early adopter so you rock a new S 63 AMG.  You then figure out you want some upscale coffee.  So you ask your glasses to suggest someplace with real baristas.  The glasses find a place six miles away.  You hop into the ride, and Mercedes luxo rocketship blasts you there in record time.  The nav is guiding the way, but the block it is on is crowded with tight parallel parking spaces.  Where is this damn coffee place?  You can’t even see the name of it, and the Google Glass interface is automatically attenuated in the vehicle.  You throw the vehicle in park in a garage around the corner, and Google Glass walks you up to the caffeinated palace with the nondescript sign.

So what’s cool?

The ability for an outboard device to throw the navigation duties to the infotainment system, and then back onto the outboard device.  Cool stuff.
