Garmin’s Head-Up Display – how cool is this!

Garmin recently launched their Heads-Up Display (HUD) to be available in August (at least in the US ).  The inner geek cannot wait to get this.  It seems very reasonable at €129.oo for what it offers.  It is hugely practical and so much better than trying to look at the phone or other device for directions.  I have seen some head-up displays in high-end cars (unfortunately not mine) but this stand alone device makes so much sense!  Its independent of the car, can be updated easily (or at least the app on the iPhone can) with latest maps updates, improvements etc.

I wonder if there is any thought to linking it to your phone in other ways like having it show who is calling you, call duration, etc. especially for when active but not specifically being used for directions.  What else could it be used to display? I have already started putting a few euro aside for it!.  Looking forward to seeing it in the flesh and putting it through its paces.  Expect another more in-depth blog post ;-)
