We all know that looking at your smartphone while you are driving is dangerous and can lead to an accident. There are a lot of gadgets out there designed to help drivers be safer and not look at a smartphone while on the road. A new device has surfaced called Navdy and it gives your car a heads up display sort of like a fighter jet.
Navdy is able to put maps, messages, calls, and apps on your dashboard and will start shipping in early 2015. The device is available for a pre-order price of $299 with the full retail price for the gadget set at $499. Navdy sits on the dash and projects images onto a 5-inch flip up screen.
The projector used is 40 times brighter than an iPhone screen making it easy to view in direct sunlight. The projected image appears to float 6-feet in front of the driver. Pairing with your smartphone is done via Bluetooth 4.0 and answering a phone call is done by waving a finger in front of the screen. Navdy runs customized Android 4.4 and has 8GB of internal storage, it will work with iOS 7 and up and Android.
