The report analyst commented, "The introduction of augmented reality technology has taken the experience of using GPS devices to a new dimension. Augmented reality technology allows users to view the real, physical environment live, directly or indirectly, where elements are augmented by computer-generated sensors. This technology is used by vendors such as Garmin, which helps in projecting images in high resolution and allow users to manipulate 3D objects.
