The system uses a small projector that attaches to a vehicle’s sun visor to project an image onto the windshield, which allows drivers to keep their eyes on the road even when consulting their navigation app, something not possible when using a tablet or smartphone.
“Two essential elements for driving are having a clear view on the road and knowing where you’re going,” Pioneer Europe’s Car Product Planning Manager Geert Verhoeven said. “Our NavGate HUD has been designed with both of those ideas in mind, ensuring drivers navigate without losing focus, keeping distractions to a minimum.”
The DLP projector’s beam creates an image Pioneer says has both high contrast and deeply saturated colors, SlashGear reported Wednesday.
“As it’s an aftermarket device, the NavGate HUD mounts right onto the car’s sun visor and can easily be removed for theft protection,” Verhoeven said.
The system will be available in October at all Pioneer car audio dealerships, the company said, although it did not announce pricing.
