    GlobalTop HUG GPS

    anyone tried or seen this?

    Looks quite interesting... not sure if I'd want to go with something like that or a seperate GPS and HUD.

    ...OOPS... That's HUD GPS, not HUG

    it looks like a good idea

    but most sat navs will do all that anway, only advantage i can see is if you plan on using independantley for the times your carputer is off / or out the the car?

    iGuidance will tell you your speed digitally. Personally, I HATE things on my windshield (why i build a carPC in the first place instead of getting a garmin gps) so If that kinda stuff bugs you then it isn't practical

    I think it would be more of a wow factor. I dont care for digital speedometers, they just dont tell you acceleration like good old analogs do

    CarPC v1.2 is now in effect. Software updates and hardware additions to come.

    ahhh.... yes... I had it confused with another HUD unit I was looking at. The original HUD I looked at connected to the speed wire of the existing gauges, so the speed would be as accurate as the original gauges. I must have assumed this did the same thing.

    Now that I've re-read it... it's not that cool
