How can I put a HUD in my car?
If the Don Wheaton Blog is guilty of anything its spending a lot of time on the incredible technology provided in the vehicles built by each of the manufacturers under the General Motors umbrella. One of the most impressive pieces of technology that can be found on a few top models is the heads up display (HUD). A couple of models from each GM brand offers the HUD as a cutting edge way to help drivers always be aware of their speed as well as receive any navigation information. But what if your car doesn’t come with a heads up display? Can you add an aftermarket HUD? Thanks to a relatively new company, you can add an aftermarket HUD to any vehicle?
Where can I buy an aftermarket HUD device?
A company called Navdy has developed a small and unobtrusive heads up display, also called Navdy, that sits on the owners dashboard. About the size of a compact disc case and barely over an inch tall, the device gives the driver the illusion the information is being projected a few feet in front of the car. The idea here is that the image will always be in the optimum place for the driver to see so he or she doesn’t have to take their eyes off the road. The video below explains everything you need to know.
Why should I get a Navdy?
There is no hiding the fact that purchasing a Navdy is going to be a substantial investment. An article published on the Car and Driver website on Dec. 21 by Greg Fink says it will set buyers back about $800. However, you are getting more than navigation. The whole system works by pairing Android or iPhones to the Navdy unit via Bluetooth. This is where it gets its information from. Additionally, the unit can help drivers make and receive calls as well as read and compose text messages – all without a driver’s hands leaving the steering wheel or taking their eyes off the road. If you notice, the video also shows that it’s possible to post to some social media platforms while on the go.
