Washington: Satellite-navigation firm Garmin is introducing its first portable head-up display, or HUD, for smartphone navigation apps.
The head-up display projects real-time driving directions onto the windscreen of a vehicle.
The device is capable of projecting crisp, bright directions onto a transparent film on the windshield, which will reduce driver distraction.
The company said the device pairs wirelessly with a compatible Bluetooth-enabled iPhone, smartphones such as Android phone or Windows Phone 8.
The benefit is seen as reducing the distance the driver`s eyes need to move from the road to take in the latest route guidance, Fox News reports.
The Garmin HUD is a portable device that can be moved from car to car, and will be launched this summer for 130 dollars, the report added.
