It’s constantly watching where you’re going, but also the traffic and if your regular commute that you do has a traffic incident, it can just alert you to say hey, there might be an incident on the way, I’ll take you another way.

The Pro system allocates 10GB of its 60GB solid-state drive to media storage, features improved natural language voice command, and can be equipped with a 17-speaker, 825-watt Meridian digital surround sound system.
