Corvette will let owners record, share drives
LAS VEGAS (AP) — The 2015 Chevrolet Corvette will have a new system that lets owners record their drives and share the video with friends.
The system uses a windshield-mounted camera, a microphone and a recorder to track data. Drivers can edit the videos to include their speed, location, lap times and other stats.
The video can be viewed on the Corvette's eight-inch color touchscreen when the car is parked or downloaded to a computer. Drivers can record up to 13 hours of driving time.
General Motors developed the system with Cosworth, a British company that supplies the Corvette racing team's electronics system.
GM introduced the system Sunday at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. It didn't say how much the option will cost.
The 2015 Corvette goes on sale next fall.
