Navdy review

Navdy, a heads-up display for your car where we’re investors, was recently reviewed on TechCrunch by Darrell Etherington who has been using Navdy for several months.

The review does a great job of outlining Navdy’s key benefits over the traditional navigation options that come with your car. These include:

  1. Distraction-free driving by projecting its imagery through the driver’s windshield onto the road in front
  2. Continuous improvements through over-the-air updates
  3. Accommodation of incoming calls and notifications
  4. Google Maps integration for traffic data and routing directions
  5. Sleek design
  6. Gesture input recognition
  7. The first use cases of its voice input recognition

Navdy starts shipping

Navdy, a heads-up display for your car where we’re investors, started shipping earlier this week.

I met up with Navdy’s founder Doug Simpson to try out the Navdy and I really liked the experience.

But as an investor I’m biased. So here’s an independent review of the Navdy. The key phrase comes toward the end of the review: “On a few occasions I jumped into the car and started driving without placing it on the dash and instantly missed it.”

Great products are those you miss not having. I think that that’s what’s going to make the Navdy successful.
