Garmin has this week launched a new and very unique portable head-up display (Garmin HUD) device which has been designed to work seamlessly with smartphone navigation applications.
The Garmin HUD has been created to provide a new way of viewing navigation instructions and details from a navigation application whilst in your car and projects onto a transparent film which is applied to the windshield or rear view mirror in your car.
The Garmin HUD has been created to provide users with and ease way to see turn arrows, distance to the next turn, current speed and speed limit, as well as estimated time of arrival. Garmin explains a little more about their new Garmin HUD device.
“The Garmin HUD redefines the navigation experience by allowing drivers to find their way without taking their eyes off the road,”-“Head-up displays currently have their place in select high-end cars, but HUD makes this technology available as an aftermarket accessory for any vehicle, at an affordable price.”
The Garmin HUD will be launching during the summer months and will be priced at around $130 with Garmin smartphone applications also available in the form of Navigon and StreetPilot for around $30.
