Know nothing about Bluetooth.
Son now has a 2015 Outback. Premium i
No Navigation System; bit too pricey.
Is it possible with one of the small hand-held Garmin or Tom-Tom GPS
models to have the display ported over to the main screen on the Outback
via Bluetooth (which apparently the car has in some form) ?

I learned the hard way that Massachusetts Avenue starts in Boston,
crosses the river into Cambridge, then proceeds through several
other towns and every time it crosses a border the numbering starts
over from one.
Background: Every square inch of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts
is in either a city or a town.
Assuming that you are not in North America and are perhaps
unfamiliar with what follows, I present it in acknowledgement that
The Greater Boston area encompasses the eastern third of
Massachusetts, and its population today is about 4.5 million. It is
the tenth largest metropolitan area in the US. I can't find census
data for the 1950s, but Boston's ranking then would have been
comparable. Believe me, we were in a populated area all the way.
I never gave that any thought, to be honest. If you hadn't mentioned
Auckland in a previous post, your use of the word "windscreen" would
tell me that you don't live in the USA like I do. So, is this the case
in NZ, you can't have something on top of the dash? Since we have 50
states with Lord knows how many cities, towns, etc., it's quite possible
that there are a myriad of local laws that may prohibit that here as
well. I don't have an in-dash GPS in my Routan minivan. I use a TomTom
that I mount on one of those heavy things you put right on the dash.
I believe it is illegal to attach anything to the windshield in
California. I live on the opposite coast so that doesn't concern me.
If there are any other states with a similar restriction I haven't
heard of them. Of course, California is a biggie.
I'd say that's right, it's closer to your line of sight than most of the
cars own instruments are, and glancing at the instruments are not
distracted driving hazards. If anything, glancing at the instruments are
absolutely necessary for the operation of the car.
