Garmin has announced the release of heads-up display (HUD) that connects to your Windows Phone via Bluetooth. The HUD unit will project navigation information on to your windshield. This will help increase safety and reduce driver distraction when using your Windows Phone as a navigational tool. By projecting the navigational information in the driver's line of sight, it keeps their eyes more on the road.
The Garmin HUD is compatible with any Bluetooth enabled smartphone running Garmin Streetpilot or NAVIGON apps. HUD displays turn arrows, distance to the next turn, current speed, and the estimated time of arrival. Additional display options include alerts for when drivers exceed the speed limit, traffic delays and safety camera locations.
