Garmin has for sale a Head-Up Display which will project navigation information directly on the windshield of the car. Interestingly, this device "has not been authorized as required by the rules of the Federal Communications Commission. This device is not, and may not be, offered for sale or lease, or sold or leased, until authorization is obtained." Regardless, I want it.
Get turn-by-turn directions to your destination for easy viewing while driving. Our Head-Up Display (HUD) receives navigation information from your smartphone² and projects it onto a transparent film on your windshield or an attached reflector lens. HUD automatically adjusts its brightness level, so its projections are clearly visible in direct sunlight or at night.
It has more navigation detail than other portable display systems, showing turn indicators, distance to the next turn, current speed and speed limit, and estimated time of arrival. HUD lets you know what lane to be in for your next maneuver, and alerts you if you exceed the speed limit. It also warns you of potential traffic delays and upcoming safety camera locations.
