Garmin VIRB Action Camera gives GoPro a worthy rival

GoPro may be the leader in the "action sports camera" category, Garmin is determined to change that its very own action camera. It may sound unusual for a company known for its GPS navigation to come up with the Garmin VIRB action camera, but they did. Just like the GoPro cameras, the Garmin VIRB can record 1080p video for as much as three hours on a single battery charge. It has, however, something else only one variety of GoPro can offer: rugged design. Similar to GoPro Hero3, Garmin's new action camera is designed to endure accidental drops, extreme temperatures, getting submerged underwater for up to 30 minutes. Because of its design, the Garmin VIRB can be mistaken for a small camcorder. This action camera also sports ANT+, Garmin's propriety wireless technology that allows Garmin hardware to communicate with each other while consuming less energy. This means that you can control your Garmin camera using the Fenix wristwatch or any other product under the brand. The Garmin VIRB can also be controlled remotely, but that would have to wait until 2014. It sports a large Record switch that lets you easily check if the camera is on Record mode, microSD card slot, a microHDMI port, and a small screen that uses ambient light to illuminate what is on display. On the software side, Garmin has said the VIRB can correct excessive shakiness and fish-eye effects in its video clips. Available beginning September, the Garmin VIRB action camera starts at $300 for the basic model, while the VIRB Elite costs $400. The Elite model includes WiFi connectivity and links to your smartphone through Garmin's iPhone or Android app. Source: Mashable Read More

Garmin HUD

Most cars today now have GPS as a standard feature. More and more people have become more dependent on it for getting directions. It is a convenient way to avoid getting lost. But the problem with most in-car GPS devices is that drivers most of the time have to take their eyes off the road to check the GPS console for data. Those brief seconds of turning the focus away from the road can be dangerous. This problem with standard GPS consoles requires a safer solution. Garmin may have found it through the Garmin HUD. The Garmin HUD is a safer solution for drivers not taking their eyes off the road when checking out their GPS data.

The device projects the data into a transparent film on the windshield or using an attached reflector lens. By doing so, it prevent drivers from taking their focus away from the road. The Garmin HUD also provides the most essential data that the driver may need without getting too complicated. It provides the data on current speed, speed limit, and display turn arrows and the distance to the next turn. It also provides data on the estimated time of arrival. It can even alert the driver if he is going over the speed limit. The Garmin HUD can obtain GPs data from a smartphone or other Bluetooth-enabled device running the Garmin StreetPilot or the NAVIGON app. The device pairs wirelessly to a compatible Bluetooth iOS, Android or Windows Phone 8 device. The Garmin HUD is slated to be available this summer. It is expected to cost around US$130. Image Source: Garmin Read More
