These days almost everyone uses some type of smartphone app to help them out with navigation while driving. However, looking down at the navigation system can be a distraction—and a dangerous one. Boy Genius Report has found an affordable solution to make navigating while driving a easier and much safer. Find out more from BGR and shop below:

From BGR:
The head-up display (HUD) systems that come in cars from the likes of Mercedes and BMW are cool, but they don’t even offer half the features you’ll get with the Techstick Universal Head Up Display. This nifty little device instantly transforms any iPhone or Android device up to 6 inches into a holographic HUD. It supports everything from speed and RPMs to turn-by-turn navigation, placing all of the important information you need right in your line of sight.

In addition, the Head Up Display is designed with technology that allows the display image to appear clear and transparent at the same time, allowing for optimum visibility whether you’re driving during the day or night. Once you choose where to place the device on your dashboard, you can adjust it to the suitable visual angle (according to the manufacturer, this is usually at a 45 degree angle). The device also comes with a water-resistant placement mat, which helps it stay secure and in place while the car is in motion.
