Looks like an interesting idea. Will be interesting to see how this technology progresses!  :)

I think it's great plus it doesn't block as much of your windscreen as a conventional satnav

I like the concept, but these days - dashboards are round and anything but flat, so it will be difficult to balance it...

I'm sure if manufacturers catch on then they will come up with a nice design for factory fitter sat nav

Yeah, a HID for Sat Nav as well as dashboard in front of the driver - that would be pretty cool~!

It's not really new, bmw has been using this technology in their cars for a long time now.

 

Stay clear of cheap ebay imitations, the image will either be blurry or doubles up on your windscreen because of the laminated layers of plastic/glass. It uses a layer of plastic that sticks onto your windscreen, this plastic is build into the windscreen of the bmw cars equipped with this tech
