Blaupunkt TravelPilot 700 – GPS satnav uses your real route as map backdrop

Blaupunkttravelpilot700

The Blaupunkt TravelPilot 700 GPS satellite navigation system uses a novel video feed system to overlay the navigation instructions onto a display of your actual route. So instead of seeing an animated map, you actually see the road in front of you with arrows, signs and voice instructions overlaid on top. It’s one of those ideas that seems kind of obvious now it’s here.

Of course the big hassle is you can’t use it at night, but it comes with a special 2D map mode to cope with murky conditions. Check out this video of the thing in action. Funky-licious. Oh and a review here. Oh and it comes with a built-in digital television tuner. Sheesh! €599.00.
