Posted Mon Aug 24, 2009 at 08:00 AM PDT by Mike Attebery

At $5000, Panasonic's newest creation is a luxury item to be sure.

Thanks to the magic of Google Translate, we’ve got full specs on both the CY-BB1000D car Blu-ray player, and CN-HX3000D Panasonic’s matching in dash GPS and media player.

The CY-BB1000D is a fairly capable in dash Blu-ray player, with a signal up to 1080p over HDMI. While not BD-Live compliant, the player is fully compatible with Bonus View. Standard HD audio formats are supported including Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD, and DTS-HD Master Audio. Retailing at just over $1,000, this is due out September 10th in Japan.

Of course, you’ll need something to watch those Blu-rays on. Panasonic suggests the CN-HX3000D navigation system. The CN-HX3000D features a seven inch 720p display, 5.1 surround processing, and an 80GB hard drive for audio and video playback. Also included are iPod connectors, an SD card slot, and even a digital TV tuner. Releasing September 10th as well, the navigation system can be yours for right around $3,800.
