Garmin's HUD on smartphone

Postby zamad » Tue Jul 09, 2013 6:52 am

I've had HUD apps showing speed, but...

From the BBC's Technology News section:

Sat-nav firm Garmin has made a portable head-up display (HUD) for cars that projects turn-by-turn directions on to a vehicle's windscreen.

The portable HUD works with a smartphone and Garmin app to generate navigation information.

The device can project information onto a transparent film attached to the windshield. The gadget can project directional arrows, distances, current speed and speed limits on the windscreen.
