I have commented briefly on Quallcomm's "Mirasol" MEMS display technology in the past on this blog, specifically here: Qualcomm's MEMS "e-paper" display debuts

Now, thanks to the CES trade-show this week we can see another implementation of it, on a GPS device, reported by Engadget.

With one of its advantages being great visibility in bright lighting conditions, using it in a GPS makes a lot of sense, not just to improve the visibility of the display over existing GPS offerings but to help them extend the battery life of the GPS, one of there limitations at the moment.
