Head Up Displays for Cars: Everything You Need to Know

Being in a position to clearly see where youíre going is very important when it comes to driving. Head up displays are designed to help us on the road by ensuring that we donít miss anything, from speed to directions to important turns. Keeping our eyes on the road instead of down at a small screen also helps keep us safe by ensuring important information is always in our line of sight. They allow drivers to keep their eyes forward, which means they will able to react more quickly if a collision might be imminent.

But what exactly are head up displays for cars and how do they work?

I recently had an Escalade as a rental car which had a HUD installed. All I got from that was, like most technology that is here to help, it is frustrating, distracting and downright annoying. While I'm sure you can adjust it's brightness or turn it off completely, for the time I had the car I couldn't be bothered delving into the manual to figure out how to get rid of that POS display. Whether it was my eyes adjusting to its brightness at night, or whether it was the difficulty identifying an impending, close range hazard on the road at highway speeds...I won't even go into the issue with the seat that tried to crush me into the steering wheel everytime I fired the engine up.

Why would I pay a pro to do something, when I can screw it up just as bad, for less?

Those of us that drive without a cell phone in hand learned how to scan. Move the eyes, quick checks of the dash, mirrors. It prevents eye strain and fatigue, and lessens tunnel vision.

Just because you're offended, doesn't mean you're right.
