I have 3 friends with that book! This system would be helpful for emergency use only. Kinda like someone in the passenger seat screaming your name when you don't notice the car slamming on its brakes in front of you. Man or not, **** happens.
Most of that stuff is nice, but not at all necessary. That being said, the pedestrian/cyclist detection feature could come in pretty handy in Japan. Their driving isn't anything like back in the states. Roads are far narrower, speed limits slower, traffic higher, blind corners galore, pedestrians and people on bikes everywhere, and vehicles that legally stop and unload on the street are extremely prevalent. Talking with your cell phone up to your ear is illegal for good reason. Texting while driving is nearly impossible, not just dangerous. You have to be far more attentive driving in Japan.
I'm not saying this feature is necessary, but it could be extremely helpful to the non driving enthusiast who is just on their daily commute by aiding in accident prevention.
