New MINI's Ride Optionally Controlled By GPS

The gadgeteer received the MINI press release on the new MINI Cooper Hardtop and is impressed by one particular option:
If this optional GPS feature doesn’t get your gadgeteer juices flowing, you must be dead. The 2014 MINI Cooper’s built in GPS can talk to your transmission. It pinpoints your location, analyzes intersections and curves in the road ahead and then relays the data to your MINI’s computer to pre-select gear changes for optimal performance. Whoa. Mind blown. Is my current MINI looking a little boring in comparison? Not at all. I love my MINI. But wow, I can’t wait to test drive the new one!
