Soon, navigate your car with display on your windscreen

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. ANI
