Blaupunkt TravelPilot 500 & 700 Turns Your Boring Station wagon Into A Virtual Jet Fighter, Complete With Heads-up Display
Until I see this thing on a shelf at a store somewhere, I'm going to suggest taking the promotional video with a hefty grain of salt. Still, Blaupunkt's new TravelPilot 500 and 700 GPS units are advertising some pretty astonishing features. According to the marketing video, the TravelPilot 700 has a built-in camera that takes live video of the road, and overlays GPS navigation instructions, creating a heads-up display-like experience.
Still not intrigued? How about Internet access, camera-based traffic sign recognition, voice recognition, the ability to automatically detect speed limit signs, WiFi for web browsing or e-mail, and a built-in TV receiver via DVB-T! Read on to see a video of this thing in action.
