Wild! No easy sure. But... can be done with:

(1) a bigger background pximap
(2) iimage rotation
(3) curve fitting to determine direction
(4) semi transparency as you said

Waste energy! However, to see clearly in sun light, you have to adjust
backlight nearly 100%, thus energy is not a problem.

Since most road segments are straight, I recommend you upgrade your
"supporting frame" rotate-able  :D

I'm also a biker, but I'm doubting if it is safe to keep watching on
the screen while moving.
That's why I develop the sounding module.

So, your requirement can be classified as "optional", agree?
