    Under the HUD: Garmin's new nav system displays instructions on windshields

    HUD works with smartphones to provide hands-free navigation

    Under the HUD: Garmin's new nav system displays instructions on windshieldsStare straight ahead

    Garmin is once again bringing luxury technology to the masses with its latest advancement in portable navigation.

    Dubbed the Head-Up Display (HUD), Garmin's new device will work in conjunction with your smartphone navigator to provide turn-by-turn directions right on your windshield.

    With HUD, gone is the clunky display unit you might use to hold your current nav system in place, and in its stead will be an overlay of where you're supposed to go next right in front of your eyes.

    "HUD redefines the navigation experience by allowing drivers to find their way without taking their eyes off the road," said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of worldwide sales, in a press release.

    "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."

    Keep your eyes on the road

    The HUD communicates wirelessly with your smartphone's compatible Garmin or Navigon app, and displays information like distance to next turn, which direction to go, and your estimated time of arrival on a transparent film on the window or on the attached reflector lens.

    The turn-by-turn audio navigation is still handled by your smartphone, though you'll no longer need to look to its screen if you happen to miss what's been said.

    Should you need to take a phone call, HUD will continue displaying instructions for the current route uninterrupted.

    HUD also tracks speed limits (when available) and your car's speed, and will notify you when you are driving above the limit. It's also got the ability to inform you of where traffic safety cameras are located.

    Since it's connected to your smartphone and isn't relying on a default map program, HUD can also update you with traffic delays, and can advise you when to change lanes for you next maneuver.

    Garmin's device is compatible with iOS, Android and Windows Phone 8, and HUD's power adapter also includes a USB port so you can charge your phone while using the device.

    The smartphone's audio directions can be set to play through your car via a Bluetooth connection, and any music playing in the car will be dialed down when a new direction prompt occurs.

    HUD will be available this summer for $129.99 (UK129.99), and the Garmin website claims orders will be fulfilled in five to eight weeks.

    For what it's worth, Garmin's site also makes note that the HUD hasn't been approved by the Federal Communications Commission yet, and can't be sold in the U.S. until such approval is granted.

    Google Pays AdBlock To Make Sure Its Ads Are Not Blocked [The Brief]

    Jim Edwards Jul. 8, 2013, 8:47 AM

    Google pays to have its ads NOT blocked by AdBlock Plus. The browser add-on has an "acceptable ads" feature which is on by default. Users can switch it off and block all ads. Here's AdBlock's explanation. AdBlock is the single most popular extension for Firefox. Ironically, Google has banned AdBlock from the Android Play store because it allegedly interferes with the actions of other apps.

    Personally I think the Q5 will be popular amongst heavy messaging teens / young adults in every market.
    Except in the US you would have to pay a kid under 18 to take a BB device. Rightly or wrongly they are perceived as being totally lame.

    You are referring to the kids under 18, right?

    Many articles of late of the high-end markets being "saturated" i.e time for the low-end makers to shine which may or may not be true. Not saying this is the direction BlackBerry should take but it's an idea.
    To shine as a low-end producer, you'd need the sorts of volumes that BBRY can't match - Heins has said so himself.

    The Canadian Diabetes Association scrapped BYOD in favour of BlackBerry. Upgraded all to BES10 and the Q10. Lots of info, good read here.

    Perfect success story that we need more of.

    I keep hearing "a year or two". It's one think to be long on BBRY, it's another to believe that BlackBerry has that long to turn things around.

    Any of you who follow business through the stock market on a regular basis, know that perception is just as important as the actual value of a company. If a company is perceived as failing, that perception could result in the company not being able to make "deal" with suppliers to get the best prices, not being able to hire or retain talented employees, not being able to negotiate with business partners to provide sales or advertising support for your products, not being able to instill confidence in consumers that your products will be supported in the future, which can all lead to eventually not being able to meet sales expectations.

    This launch was just as much about changing the perception of BlackBerry as it was launching a new OS.

    Ignore feature? This many sound silly but how do you ignore someone?

    Firstly, you were the farthest from my mind when I made my post about people wanting to get thread closed down. I do not think for one minute as you are a passionate supporter.

    Now back to the ignore function.

    First click on the avatar of the person you want to ignore.

    Second click on their forum profile at the bottom right..

    Third, slick on "add to ignore list" on the left hand side.

    I don't disagree with anything you just shared...my point was that perceptions change.
