Sony’s product might be tempting for us if it were to use more of my iPhone’s capabilities.

My G3 also has GPS capabilities. Why not display position, course, speed data? Most boats that I have recently seen prior to purchasing my current boat have a fantastic sound system along with iPod docking capability.

In other words, provide something more useful for the active boat owner.
