Heads up, here's the HUD satnav

AsusTek's projection satnav

Bridging the IT gap between rising business demands and ageing tools

A Heads-Up Display is usually the reserve of only the most exclusive motors, but Asus has made the technology more mainstream by integrating it into its latest satnav.

AsusTek's R710: shows navigation info on your windscreen

Although the Asus R710 has a 5in, 480 x 272 touchscreen that drivers can play around with, the gadget will ensure you keep your eyes on the road by projecting navigational instructions and your current speed onto your car's windscreen.

Bluetooth 2.0 connectivity will let you take your calls wirelessly, whilst a built-in light sensor will automatically adjust the LCD panel’s brightness according to the surrounding light conditions.

Elsewhere on the 200g satnav you’ll find a USB port and a slot for Micro SD memory cards of up to 8GB. The unit supports a range of audio and video formats, including MP3 and MPEG, so it'll double-up as a PMP too.

A UK release date or price for the AsusTek R710 satnav hasn’t been tracked down yet.
