If you’re spending quite a bit of time on the road for work or pleasure, then you will love the Navdy. It’s a portable Head-UP display. What this basically means is that it utilises a technology called Head-Up Display technology (HUD) which allows for a transparent image to be projected right in front of you using an advanced Augmented Reality display while you drive. The mounting system is magnetic so it’s easy to install and take with you wherever you go. So whether it’s directions to your next destination, an important call, or the name of the song playing, you won’t miss a thing but you won't have to touch your iPhone either. There is a dial that can be mounted to your steering wheel so you can answer a call or skip a song without lifting a hand off the wheel. With Navdy at the helm, you’ll have a safer and more enjoyable driving experience overall.
