Garmin Head-Up Display (HUD)

 

The Garmin HUD is very cool, but in a 1980s sort of way. Driving around with this little, green head-up display projected into my line of sight with its segmented LED text and simple digital readouts made me momentarily feel like the star of an '80s...

The Garmin Head-Up Display reduces driver distraction by projecting GPS information onto the windshield and in the line of sight. Setup is largely automated and painless. Garmin includes two methods of viewing the display.

Only one reflective film is included in the box, and installation is easy to botch. The HUD requires an additional $50 app to function.

The Garmin HUD boosts safety and helps keep eyes on the road, but the cost of entry will likely dissuade most drivers.

Consumer review by:

"Fascinating technology 1st used in aircraft"

 

Super idea, but too cumbersome and expensive at this point for auto usage.

About five years ago this was a $150,000 piece of equipment offered only in "heavy metal" airplanes....not was I'm flying. "Heads Up" means just that -- you're looking at a virtual "runway" on approach in rotten weather.

The best application is for RENTAL CARS -- the windscreen plastic piece is too expensive and needs to be portable.
