A head-up display (HUD) is a digital, transparent image of a vehicle's dashboard information that is projected on the windshield. It is designed to help keep a driver's eyes and attention on the road.
Why does it matter to me?
You probably know from experience that anything can happen in a split second. Using a HUD may help proactively reduce any distractions or accidents. With so many distractions on the road, a HUD can offer you a convenient way to check your speedometer, outside temperature and clock. Certain vehicles with HUD can also connect to your Bluetooth® feature so that you can receive notifications of incoming calls, emails, text messages, and music selections.
Picture yourself in this scenario:
You are driving down the road and getting lots of incoming text messages while you are listening to music through your car’s Bluetooth. Rather than potentially looking down and reaching for your phone, you are able to quickly read the message that your kids’ basketball game has moved locations. Without looking away from the road, you can easily switch lanes to head in a new direction without pulling over and delaying your trip. That’s why you should consider having a HUD option in your family’s next vehicle.
