    Heads Up display using your mobile phone

    Smartphone becomes in-car head-up display



    Sat-nav firm Garmin has made a portable head-up display (HUD) for cars that projects turn-by-turn directions on to a vehicle's windscreen.


    The portable HUD works with a smartphone and Garmin app to generate navigation information.

    The gadget can project directional arrows, distances, current speed and speed limits on the windscreen.

    Information is projected via the HUD's attached reflector lens or on to a plastic film stuck to the window glass.

    The navigation system can also provide voice prompts via a smartphone's speaker or a car stereo that works with the Bluetooth short range radio technology. The app associated with the sat-nav system is available for iPhones, Android phones and Windows Phone 8 handsets.

    I don't know, haven't we seen this kind of deal before? Maybe not with a smartphone, but the whole box on the dash, reflected off a film trick has been done before, I believe.

    How's it powered?
    How's it connect to the smartphone?
    How's it stay in place on the dash?

    Enquiring minds want to know....
