First saw this on a NBC program last year (?), and someone mentioned to me the other day at work. What do you guys think about this? Basically it logs how you drive, a good way for parents to monitor the driving habits of young teens.<p>Link - <A HREF="http://www.familysafemedia.com/carchip_-_car_chip.html" TARGET="_blank">http://www.familysafemedia.com....html</A>

its a great idea, and its great for someone who wants to log the actions in their car, but it is horrible for someone like me who drives completely differentalone than when I have other people in the car...no but seriously, my parents would never get i past me...in my truck anyways...my ecu conection thing is under my steering column and it is something i would notice...its a great device though...

It has the potential to lead to unwanted big brother style intrusion. however it sounds like a great idea for accident reconstruction, especially if it can give you GPS coordinates, speed and steering wheel imputs.

Seems like a way to keep lawyers in Lexi. The litigation over this will be massive.
