When I first saw this posting, I thought that there was a 'hack' to your GPS that acted like a ScanGuage. It sure would be cool if such a thing were possible !
Hey I got to thinking about it and my gps has a special feature that stops charging itself if it gas gotten to a certain temp inside the car so it does not get too hot and break,

The ironic part is all the complaints about the gps is that it does not charge in the car, making it useless, they do not know about this great feature integrated

ANYWAYS I was thinking and maybe gps's that are made into the car dont overheat as much as the normal ones are because they do not have a battery that is heating it up more?? just a guess or possibility
