Garmin's pricey HUD moves turn by turn directions from iPhone to windshield

When it comes to getting from point A to point B in your car, it's nice to have a phone that knows the way. Garmin, the maker of GPS systems and mapping software, has developed a new Bluetooth accessory that should make it easier to get there: the HUD (short for Heads Up Display). Coming in September, the HUD works with iOS, Android and Window Phone 8 devices alike and gives your automobile a taste of jet fighter technology.

When last I met Bernd Hahn, he was the product lead on NAVIGON for iOS, one of the best turn-by-turn navigation apps on iOS in an era when neither Apple nor Google offered any such functionality. Now Garmin has bought NAVIGON but luckily they were smart enough to not only keep Hahn on, but put the Garmin for iOS app firmly under his passionate, creative control as well.

Navigon 2.0 brings MyMaps, only install the maps you need

The popular navigation app, Navigon, has gone 2.0 and brings a new UI and two new features, MyMaps and FreshMaps XL.

MyMaps allows users to download maps by region. So if you're not planning on leaving your state soon, you can download only the maps for your state and pick up other on an as-need basis. This will not only save some storage space on your iPhone or iPad, but speeds up the update process.

NAVIGON 2.0 is the first iPhone onboard navigation app that separates the app from the maps, allowing users to choose which map regions to download to their device. Users who, for example, own the USA version can pick the states they want immediately and download additional regions at a later time.
