GlobalTop GPS HUD

GlobalTop plans to make its presence felt at next month's CeBIT expo by revealing the GPS HUD Speed Meter, a different approach to using GPS. The gumstick-sized adapter is designed chiefly to reduce the dangers of looking away from road to check vital information. Speed, headings, and other vital information about the car's progress are displayed on the windscreen instead of a separate display, keeping the driver's eyes fixed ahead. Onboard Bluetooth also sets up the Speed Meter as an impromptu GPS receiver, pairing wirelessly with a cellphone or other GPS devices to bring live mapping to handhelds with the right software.

Full details should be available by the time the device is unveiled at CeBIT. Exact launch plans are unknown but are likely to be handled through third-party companies that ship the GlobalTop's device under their own names. [via DigitalReviews.net]
