Head up display for smartphone navigation
The Navmii mapping app fro smartphones has been updated to provide head-up display capabilities for safer night-time driving.
Navmii is introducing a new set of features with an update which is available for iOS and Android, enabling users to benefit from safer night-time driving with the new HUD windshield projection. Designed to make night driving a comfortable, safe, stress-free experience, the projection capability illuminates Navmii’s ‘dark hours’ screen onto the windshield.
Navmii is a free navigation app for drivers, available for iOS, Android, Blackberry and Windows Phone devices across the globe. Navmii apps are available for more than 90 countries on every continent and already has more than 24 million users. Navmii uses its own proprietary mapping data combined with the Open Street Map initiative to deliver reliable open sourced navigation to users, who can also contribute information to the Navmii community to help the app improve.
The 3.3 update not only introduces the HUD feature, spoken local streets names have now been added to the voice navigation ensuring that directions to destinations are as simple and localised as possible.
Other 3.3 design features include safety camera reporting so users can edit safety camera locations and report them to the Navmii community, enhanced digital speedometer design and improved address and point of interest search.
Peter Atalla, CEO of Navmii says: “The new HUD feature further revolutionises the Navmii driving experience. We are dedicated to ensuring the safety of the Navmii community and with this projection feature we aim to increase safer, navigated driving. The 3.3 update is just one of the improvements in the pipeline and we are committed to listening to the Navmii community and enhancing the app based on their feedback”
