I would be lying if I said I wasn’t concerned about the number of people using their phones while driving. The fact is, I see more people looking at their phone these days instead of the task at hand. If you look around while you’re at a red light, you’ll surely see tons of blue faces. I’ve made a promise to myself and my family that I would never use my phone while driving. If you try to call me while driving, I’m sorry, but your call will be missed. No text, no phone call, no email, no notification of any kind is worth me taking my eyes off the road.
When I met Chris’ family, they felt like my own family. They completely trusted me and loved me since day one. I’ll never forget driving Chris’ grandmother home in my car while Chris drove his grandfather in their car. His grandma had nothing but complete faith in my driving. She even noted to my mother-in- law that I didn’t take my eyes off the road once.
Chris is the type to check a text or answer a phone call, and it FREAKS ME OUT. Red light or not, my eyes are always on the road. Some people just have to check, and that is a big problem. Nearly everyone driving has a phone, and it feels like 4 out of 5 use it in the car. The Navdy head-up display can truly help those who need to stay connected while driving.
WHY NAVDY HEAD-UP DISPLAY?
For my family, I think it’s the most practical solution, especially for my husband’s commute (1+ hour each way). Navdy sits on your car’s dashboard, right in front of you, and projects the driving information you need—maps, calls, messages, music—over the road ahead, allowing you to stay focused on driving without looking down at your phone.
We had a ton of fun testing Navdy out. It works on your Android or Apple phone using the Navdfy app. We read a few Navdy reviews and felt like this was a great fit for our family and couldn’t wait to try it out ourselves.
The Navdy HUD makes driving FUN! Navdy is truly life-changing; every car should have it. It’s much more affordable than the systems that come built in, plus, thanks to its magnetic mounting system, it’s portable and can be moved from car to car.
Navdy has won many awards.
● CES 2017 Innovation Award for Vehicle Intelligence
● CES 2017 Innovation Award for Virtual Reality
● The Red Dot Award: Product Design 2017
● PCMag Editors’ Choice Award

HOW DOES THE NAVDY HEAD-UP DISPLAY WORK?
With Navdy, everything you need to see is projected right in front of you, as if the image is floating above the hood of the car. This allows your eyes to stay focused on the road while you view information.
To control Navdy, simply use the steering wheel-mounted Navdy dial. You can answer calls using natural hand gestures, and you can even use voice control to find destinations or reply to messages—all without needing to touch your phone. What’s more, you can share your trip with friends and family letting them know when you’ll be home, sending a text message with a link to a real-time interactive map with your exact location, destination, and ETA. And you can do all this without ever removing your hands from the steering wheel.
Navdy is the world’s first device for your car that leverages cutting edge augmented reality technology. You’re safely looking forward (where your eyes should be) and staying connected at the same time. There are NO subscription fees either, which is huge!
HOW TO INSTALL THE NAVDY HUD:
The installation was super simple. To install Navdy you will use the OBD-II port on your car. Every vehicle after 1996 has this port, and the Navdy app will even help you find your OBD-II port in your car (typically it’s in driver’s footwell). By hooking it up to this port you power the Navdy device, plus you can see car information like fuel level, MPG and RPM.
So no more taking your eyes off the road. Navdy makes driving a more harmonious, safer experience for you and your family.
