The TI-2001 GTI sold in Europe was thought as a calculator for cars. With an integrated timer/clock you could measure your travelling speed, calculate your remaining time to the destination and some other car related calculations. The housing of the TI-2001 GTI was similar to the TI-30 LCD with it's huge battery compartment but added a small buzzer for the timer-alarm.
The model was available only in the year 1982 but in both English, French and Italian lettering, in Germany the product was sold as TI LOGpit.
In the meantime we discovered even an English version in silver housing dealing with miles instead kilometers. Once again it got the TI-2001 GTI sticker.
Don't miss the TI-1850 Visor Kit, the first calculator for cars.
Compare this car-computer with an airplane-computer sold by Cessna.
