Digital dashboard/GPS

Having watched the consolidation of technologies over the last decade, where my cell phone is now a wi-fi computer, iPod, PDA, camera, and GPS (iPhone) and seeing the awesome digital display that comes on the new HP2S and other high end sport bikes, I wonder how far off a touch screen digital display is that also functions as a GPS or more. I would imagine that it is possible today. Thoughts?

I'd like a combo GPS / radar detector / satellite radio. It might be a little big, but much easier to find a mounting spot for a single item than 3.

That's a good point to consider.

If Garmin would incorporate a radar detector in their GPS's, I'd probably buy one for every vehicle I own.
