Google and VW to develop in-car navigation system?

There have been rumours flying around recently about Google and VW jointly developing an in-car navigation system. Now, it seems that they are true. Using the technology pioneered by the people at Keyhole (now Google Earth), the navigation system will display photos or satellite images of the route ahead, instead of the simple lines and names displayed by almost all in-car GPS navigation systems. It definitely seems like a good use of the Google Earth API. I wonder how much VW is paying for Google’s participation?
