Wait a minute now, you're speaking in tongues. Old school and GPS are oxymorons. "Old School" is 8 tracks and AM radio stations, or at the very least cassette tapes. They didn't even have satellites orbitting back then to support that new-fangled GPS stuff. And iPhone...what is that?

I still have the original Blaupunkt that came in a box with the car (can't use it, the security code was not included). Instead, the car has a Panasonic POS that plays music via FM (or them thar' new fangled CD thingies) through absolutely crappier speakers. 'Course, my old hearing is pretty well shot from a lifetime of noisy hobbies so the music thing does't do much for me anyway.
