Mercedes-Benz are partnering up with Bosch to work on a Splitview navigation screen for the S-Class that features an eight-inch screen that displays two images at once courtesy of new adjacent pixel technology. The system only allows the driver to see satellite navigation and car command controls, while the passenger sits back in S-Class luxury watching a movie. The front passenger can also choose to listen to the movie with headphones, or the soundtrack can be played through the car’s speakers.

Mercedes new Splitview monitor is not some far away futuristic concept either. It will be featured in the S-Class beginning at the end of 2009. Similar technology has been paraded round in the past but Mercedes is the first luxury automaker to officially announce the technology in one of its production vehicles.
