Default cooling seats and emergency notification

all right, there'* heated leather seats for those weary winters in MN!!! But is it possible to have cooling seats? How bout running coolant lines, or ducting from the vents on ur dash and run the AC?? These thought are pretty goofy, but i was daydreaming today.

O ya...There are a lot of stupid drivers out there. I drive over 100 freeway miles a day and experience them all the time. I think cars should come with some sort of siren/alarm/radio cut that senses some sort of signal from emergency vehicles with their lights on. I had to bail off 35w because of stupid drivers who don't look in their rear views. I hate stupid drivers....

Great idea on that cutout! I have a serious system that is usually turned up way too loud to hear emer-vehicles. I am also going way too fast, so I'm alway scanning the mirrors for just this item.

i wonder if you could do something like my PS2 controller. It has holes drilled into it and has a CPU fan on the back to keep my hands cool during gameplay. The only problem I can see with cooled seats would be that when you sit down ur butt would block all of the openings for air, and you would have to take out alot of cushioning :(

I live in Tucson AZ and there is one problem with "cooling the seats"it could really mess up your back-that and if it cooled too much and your sweating-well im sure your familure with sticking your togune on a frozen pipe Sorry for the visual :( .
Leather as well as vinal out here really sucks!!!We even have to keep our windows cracked open when it hits 110 plus for the fear of bursting our glass when the door closes. But as we say here"you cant shovel sunshine" Jon

Zeke, both of my radar detectors cover the KH (safety) band. It'* used for emergency notification. One of my detectors (front one) even tells me what type of vehicle or hazard it is.

It was a good idea. You just got it too late to get rich off of it!

what kind of radars are you running Will? I can't think of the name of mine off hand, but when it starts it says: k band, ka band, laser, SAFETY.... is this the same thing that you have? I've never had the safety go off.....maybe I had it all along
