Anker Roav vs Navdy: the dash-mounted HUD game for your phone intensifies

Anker Roav vs Navdy: the dash-mounted HUD game for your phone intensifies
Anker, the maker of some of the best value-for-money charging, cable, and other accessories, is seemingly not going to let the nascent industry of heads-up displays (HUD) for your car go unanswered. It is apparently prepping a direct competitor to the popular Navdy project that is about to hit shops soon, and has called it Roav.

Roav won't be only for HUDs, it seems, but rather "the beginning of a product line that will let you add new functionality to your car." From the looks of the teaser site, you can expect all the basic HUD functionality that uses info from your car and smartphone, and projects it right in front of your windshield for less distracted driving. 

You evidently will be able to project directions, answer calls and read messages or music playback info, all while keeping your eyes on the road, and hands on the wheel, as the transparent background lets the road unfurl freely while you soak the numbers and letters in the air. The Roav HUD will be available some time in November, just in time for the holiday shopping spree. Mum's the word on pricing just yet, but, knowing Anker, the Roav should be with a pretty good value-for-money ratio.
