An item that has been in the glove compartment of cars for many years may be fading away.Chrysler says it will be the first automaker to provide a digital owners manual.

It will come in the form of a smaller user guide and a DVD.

The new digital manuals will come with Chrysler's complete lineup of 2010 model Jeep Dodge and Chrysler vehicles.

The company says the switch will save 930 tons of paper or an estimated 20,000 trees each year.
