After installing the app, you must download the maps and system files over WiFi before you can use it.

The Garmin HUD app provides detailed navigation information to your Garmin HUD+ device so it can beam turn-by-turn directions and more right onto your windshield for easy viewing while driving. To use the app, you must pair your phone with a Garmin HUD+ device via Bluetooth®. Once paired, the Garmin HUD app transforms into a full-featured navigation app.

HERE (former Navteq) Map coverage:
United States, Canada, Mexico, Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands

Note:
1) Includes fixed location cameras.
2) This service requires a data connection. Depending on your data plan, use of this app may incur charges.
3) The application requires registering on first start. This requires a small amount of data to be sent and my incur charges (approximately 25kb).
4) After installation of the app, you need to download maps and system files via WiFi. The free memory required can be up to 2.5GB depending on your selected maps. Please make sure that you have a stable WiFi connection for download (> 30 min.) and sufficient memory available.
5) After the first and each subsequent connection to your HUD+ device, this app can also be used without the HUD+ device for up to 30 days. You must reconnect your Garmin HUD+ device to the app at the latest after this period.
6) Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

Not able to use Said error due to maps unable to download. No memory card.... unhappy spent a lot of money on this. Can't even use it on a trip I'm going on.

Works pretty well for a first generation product Paired easily with my Galaxy S3 and my LG G Pad v410. I like that the maps are downloaded so you don't have to have a data connection to use the navigation, unlike Google Maps or Apple Maps. Interestingly, on the iPhone/iPad version, you can download the entire North America map set as one download, but each individual state and Canadian territory has to be downloaded separately in the Android version. I do a fair amount of travel to the Caribbean and the iPhone/iPad version contains many Caribbean islands, which the Android version doesn't. Every once in a while the pairing fails when I get in the car and I have to reset the HUD device by turning it off and then on again. Still, for what I paid ($70), it's a nice addition and the Navigon software isn't too bad. Only giving the Android version 4 stars because the iOS version is so much more developed.

So awesone, so many what were you thinkings Navigon with the Garmin HUD display is really cool when fully ready to go. But having to pair it e erytime time??? The power cord comes out the left side of the HUD. Really??? That's where the steering wheel is. Even without the HUD we are (should be) so far past the pick a state, then city, then street....I just "OK Google" and have address and directions in 2 seconds. Without voice input or Google integration The tedious input frustrates me long before the maps start to impress.

Terrible handling of audio. Seems to whisper the instructions, even when set to the loudest possible settings, and if you have another app that plays audio, instead of muting or pausing the other source, it whispers even quieter and makes the other source unintelligible as well. Even at full volume the voice audio is 1/2 that of any other app on the phone.
