Default Does this exist yet?

I have quite a few surface vehicles and vessels. I currently use the Spektrum DX3s for all of them. I like the telemetry for my nitro trucks for engine temp and RPM. But all that technology is nearly useless for electric on road. What are we all looking for....speed.

So is there a radio yet that has built in GPS in the RX or at least a GPS module that plugs into the RX and can transmit the current and max speed right to your TX screen?

Traxxas TQi. Need an iPhone or iPod though. You can run the sensors on the electrics as well. Monitor motor rpm, motor temp, battery temp, speed control temp, voltage of the main battery and separate receiver battery voltage if applicable. Spektrum better radio for the most part. Gonna lose some features if you switch.

Yeah I know about the TQI. I wasn't interested in having to plug the iPhone in the TX. I want to see it built into the system and displayed on the TX screen. I'll hold on to the Spektrum until something like this comes out.

It doesn't seem like an impossible thing to make. Telemetry already exists. All they need is a small GPS module to plug into the Telemetry module.
