Augmented reality becomes Pioneer’s choice as driving aid, compatible with iGO primo app

Pioneer NavGate HUD

Pioneer Europe has recently announced the release of its augmented-reality NavGate head-up display (HUD) for smartphone navigation apps. NavGate HUD, compatible with NNG’s iGO primo app, projects navigation instructions, POIs, road hazards and more through the windscreen, allowing the driver to keep his eyes on the road while navigating.

Head-up display technology can be the next step of driver safety. As the navigation information is displayed within the drivers line of sight, the technology provides a more focused and safe driving experience. Research by IHS Automotive shows, that by 2020, 9 percent (9,1 million) of cars sold will have HUDs on board around the world.

The NavGate HUD compatible with iGO primo app will be available from October 2013.
