A Transparent GPS That Keeps Your Eyes On The Road
Conventional GPS systems take your eyes off the road, block your view, and often times it overloads you with unnecessary information.
Technically, Hudify is a form an aftermarket head-up display (HUD). But no one really knows what a head-up display is – not unless you drive a recent high-end luxury car that has one built-in or fly commercial airplanes for a living.
Head-up display technology is now increasingly being used to improve safety, comfort, and convenience in cars.
“A head-up display or heads-up display, also known as a HUD, is any transparent display that presents data without requiring users to look away from their usual viewpoints.” – Wikipedia
Out of the 1.2 billion cars on the road in 2015, only 4 million (3.33%) cars were equipped with a head-up display. Not because it’s not effective, because it is. Commercial pilots and space shuttle commanders use the same technology to land safely. You can also find them in high-end luxury cars.
It’s just expensive for manufacturers to implement and even more expensive for car owners to have. You could either buy a new luxury car with one built in ($1000+ plus the cost of the car) or buy a aftermarket projector-based HUD that still cost around $400.
This not the case anymore. It doesn’t matter what car you drive. As long as you have a smartphone, you can have a safe, futuristic navigation system for less than the cost of a tank of gas.

Notice how the road ahead is blurred out when you look at your speedometer or GPS unit? That’s because your eyes can only focus on one point at a time.
When you look at different object of greater or lesser distance, your eyes need to readjust. Processing information from a display, in addition to readjusting your eyes twice, requires at least half a second with a conventional instrument cluster.
Half a second with your eyes off the road at 100km/h means you’re practically driving blind for at least 27.5 meters or 90 feet.
Hudify shows information exactly where you need it – directly in the line of sight. You will get all the information you would get from your instrument cluster or navigation system without taking your eyes off the road.
