A new device from Garmin is attempting to make following a GPS navigation much easier than traditional models. Hopefully, it will lead to a much safer system than our current setups. A new heads-up display (HUD) model allows users to follow turn-by-turn directions without taking their eyes away from the road.
Gamrin unveiled the new device today, sending out the image you see above along with a few details on the price and design of the handy gadget. This would mark the first portable heads-up display, the small device will project turn-by-turn driving navigations onto a transparent film that you place on your windshield or an attached reflector lens if you prefer. Now Garmin doesn’t officially say that the HUD device is safer (for obvious legal reasons) but any improvement to the current GPS second screens that we have been using is worth investigating.
Using the device you can see turn arrows, the distance to the next turn, your current speed against the speed limit and your ETA. You can even find the best lane to drive in, and predict traffic delays. More features are expected to launch at a later date. All of the information is gathered from your smartphone, making the device cheaper, lighter and more flexible. The navigation is gathered via Bluetooth (iPhone, Android or Windows Phone 8) running on the Garmin StreetPilot1 or NAVIGON app. The device is expected to launch later this summer for a suggested retail price of $129.99.
