Aside from playing standard
Marty software, the Car Marty also came included
with a GPS module
and related Navisoft
software (developed by Naviken
), enabling you to find your way around Japan
's mega-crowded cities
. Two ports
on the front allowed you to connect one Marty gamepad
(actually more of a tethered remote control
-type device for navigating the menus), with keyboard
(for car karaoke
?) and external floppy drive
connectors on the back.
What the Car Marty had that the home Marty didn't was a special slot for GPS map cards right below the CD slot, which (as you could probably guess) were preloaded with maps from various regions of the country. There was also some sort of door on top of the unit that's slightly smaller than a cassette tape and that I haven't found a purpose for yet.
