This is the screenshot from the new Blaupunkt Travel Pilot 700. They call this “video navigation“. The unit has a video camera on its back facing the windshield which captures live footage of the road just ahead of you. And then navigation prompts are superimposed on to this video feed. This must be reality view at its best.
Other really innovative features implemented on blaupunkt travel pilot 700 include the ability to recognize traffic signs, voice control, WLAN, DVB-T receiver, live traffic information, and blutooth. We don’t know what kind of hardware is in this device but it better have a fast CPU. All those image and video processing requires a lot of juice.
It looks like Blaupunkt is raising the bar when it comes to GPS navigation systems. You must see this video:
Blaupunkt travel pilot 700 is expected to cost about $740via
