HUD that you keep your eyes on the road

The amount of technology inside modern vehicles is growing with every model year. One of the most common things that drivers use in their vehicle is GPS navigation and often that navigation comes from a smartphone rather than a navigation device or systems built into the car itself. Garmin is a GPS company that makes a number of apps designed to run on smartphones and help drivers get around.

Garmin has announced a new GPS accessory for drivers that costs about $130 and is compatible with Bluetooth smartphones running the Garmin StreetPilot and Navigon applications. The accessory is able to throw basic driving directions onto the windshield of the vehicle so drivers don't have to take their eyes off the road to know when to turn.

The gadget is called the Garmin HUD and will sell for $129.99. It is expected to hit stores around the country this summer. "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. "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."

Aston Martin Rapide S, Vanquish Get ZF Eight-speed Automatic; Both Cars Get Faster, More Efficient

Aug 8 2014 12:21pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Aston Martins have at least two good things going for them: lip-smackingly beautiful lines and fabulous engines. For 2015, the brand is bringing its transmissions up to speed—and upping the speed, literally—of the Rapide S sedan and the Vanquish flagship sports car by replacing the old six-speed with a fresh new ZF eight-speed automatic transmission. This marks the first time that ZF’s prolific 8HP transmission, dubbed Touchtronic III by Aston Martin, has been mounted in a transaxle ...

Car Review: 2014 Dodge Dart GT

Jul 25 2014 12:42pm CDT | Source: Driving Canada

There is an awful lot of variety out there in the automotive world, as consumers can select from minute micro-cars to gigantic leviathan SUVs. However, there is still a large segment of the Canadian population that just wants to put a small automobile in the driveway. Canadians love small cars. This posed a real problem for Chrysler when the company chose to replace its venerable Dodge Neon (later SX 2.0 ...
