You love your smartphone. You may even be one of the 46% of smartphone owners who say it’s something they can’t live without. The problem is that it’s hard to turn your phone off once it has become an integral part of your life. And if you’re handling your smartphone while driving, it’s proven that you run a much higher risk of having an accident.
The smart folks at Navdy have solved this problem. Navdy is a portable heads-up display (HUD) device that lets you view and respond to critical information without taking your eyes off the road. It’s uncluttered and intuitive display makes it safe and easy use.
How Navdy Works
Navdy displays information where you can see it. It uses the same technology used in all commercial airplanes so pilots can keep their eyes on the runway while landing the plane. It projects an image onto a transparent plastic lens that magnifies the image and makes it appear to float outside your car’s windshield. The image is focused on the distance, so you never have to look away from the road.
Navdy mounts on the dashboard of your existing car between the steering wheel and windshield. A variety of easy-to-install friction mounts ensures a secure fit for any car.
- Turn-by-turn Google Maps navigation that matches what you see on the road itself.
- Hands-free calling, texting, and tweeting without touching or looking at your phone.
- The car diagnostics data that’s important to you.
- Current speed display.
- The ability to play, pause, and skip music with your favorite music apps.
Provides Simple, Uncluttered Navigation
Navdy uses the Google Maps app to provide realistic information for in-car navigation and safety systems. What you see on the display corresponds to what you see on the road and what’s happening in your car.
Understands Voice And Gestures
One of Navdy’s strengths lies in its use of the voice recognition apps built into your phone. It uses voice commands you already know as a user of Google Now or Siri. It’s easy to make a call and compose or listen to a text or tweet without interrupting the navigation display using voice commands and simple gestures.
Navdy’s touchless gestures feature feels both natural and safe. You don’t have to look down to fumble with your phone to answer calls or get rid of notifications, so your pleasant drive along the California coast doesn’t end with a cold plunge into the Pacific.
Uses Your Favorite Apps
You’re hooked on your smartphone apps, aren’t you? Navdy knows this, and it works directly with the apps you use every day. App notifications such as text messages and Calendar alerts appear on the side of the display. If you choose to respond to a notification, the Navdy screen splits, so you don’t lose navigation. You never have to take your eyes off the road.
Love music? Perfect. Navdy supports music apps such as Spotify, Pandora, iTunes, and Google play with hands-free voice and gesture control.
