Garmin, a company well known for its navigation technology, has announced the company's very first portable head-up display (HUD) with support for smartphones, such as Android and Windows Phone 8. The HUD displays navigation information from a Bluetooth-enabled smartphone running a Garmin StreetPilot1 or NAVIGON app.

"HUD redefines the navigation experience by allowing drivers to find their way without taking their eyes off the road. Head-up displays currently have their place in select high-end cars, but HUD makes this technology available as an aftermarket accessory for any vehicle, at an affordable price," Dan Bartel stated. He's the Garmin vice president of worldwide sales.

HUD will be available this summer for $129.99 and connects wirelessly via Bluetooth to an iPhone, Android, or Windows Phone 8 device. The HUD also features an integrated USB port on the vehicle power adapter cable, which allows you to charge your smartphone in return.
