We've seen dual view prototypes for ages now, but you can bank on said technology (dubbed Parallax Barrier) being front and center on Land Rover's forthcoming flagship vehicle. Announced today at the New York Auto Show, the 2010 Range Rover will arrive with a 12-inch touchscreen infotainment system that puts off different images depending on the viewing angle. In order words, the driver can check out the route to grandma's house while the lucky soul riding shotgun peeks a DVD -- in theory, at least. The navigation system is HDD-based and also includes a USB socket and a dedicated iPod port. Land Rover even spruced up the voice activation system, giving motorists the ability to voice their concerns about climate and volume (and get instant results). Check the full snippet just past the break.

World first 'dual view' screen technology
The 2010 Range Rover is the first to feature 'dual view' infotainment touch
screen technology. The display allows the driver and passenger to view
completely different images simultaneously. This means that the passenger
can enjoy a DVD movie while the driver follows navigation instructions, all on
the same screen.
The system uses patented Parallax Barrier technology to alternately hide and
reveal columns of pixels to the left and right hand views of the screen. The
display comes with a specially designed agar coating to help prevent sunlight
bleaching.
The screen retains all of the touch-screen functionality of the previous
display, but the graphics and menus have been redesigned for easier and
more intuitive operation, allowing the number of 'hard' buttons around the
screen to be reduced by a third. As before, functions such as satellite
navigation, DVD video, and audio systems can be controlled via the display.
An updated voice control system with enhanced voice recognition software
complements the touch screen, and can be used to control a range of
entertainment and comfort features such as the audio system and climate
control.
