Electronista: ASUS last week introduced the R710 portable navigation device with an industry-first feature in its optional PathFinder Heads-Up Display (HUD) that helps drivers keep their eyes on the road.
The HUD projects directions, speed and other information on the vehicle’s windshield. The device also has a 5-inch touchscreen display like more traditional navigators and, in keeping with its safety theme, includes Bluetooth 2.0 hands-free calling support. Built-in echo-canceling software makes conversations via the microphone and speaker easily understood.
The R710 features a microSD memory card slot that lets users access up to 8GB of videos, music and photos.
