Garmin HUD+ (Head-Up Display)

 

The HUD+ is an external display and windshield projector for your smartphone's Garmin GPS app. It works well, but is more of a toy for those with fighter-jet fantasies than a must-have.

A very effective way to add head-up display capability to your car, but adds to in-car clutter From there on, the appeal somewhat dwindles. As we mentioned, it's not a terribly tidy looking solution. It's always going to look a bit 'stuck on'. With...

works as advertized

 

I love it for safety reasons

Easy pairing, rugged built

If your windshield is 2 layers, can give you a double image if you are not using the included reflectors

Work as a HUD but no built-in GPS = Poor results

 

Work as a HUD but no built-in GPS = Poor resultsThis relies on your smart phones GPS signal which in my case is very patchy so took back for refund & bought a standard Garmin Garmin nüvi 42 instead and its perfect!
