We reported about the GPS HUD (Heads-up Display) from GlobalTop a couple of weeks ago and it really sounded promising.

The GlobalTop HD100 GPS navigation device displays your speed and other navigational info, like direction, onto your car's windscreen, a feature only known from premium limousines.

The good news, it works. The bad news it looks awful. I do not want to see retro red LED segment digits on my windshield. It makes the whole gadget looks like homemade. See below a how the BMW 6-series Heads-up display looks like.
GlobalTop needs to change the unit into using a full graphical display to be able to show a somewhat stylish and state-of-the-art display to succeed with this in principal great product idea.
