Head up display is a display feature that shows you a navigation system that would show up hovering over the dash. This is particularly handy in situations when there is heavy traffic, road work, confusing roads, or driving through city roads. The Head up displays have been around for a couple decades now being used mostly in aircrafts. But now the HUD is coming back to be used in vehicles with more efficiency than the first time around.
One of the challenges faced by the Head Up Display, is the possibility of distracting drivers. Some people that that it can cause people to get distracted, but with it being on the windshield you would still be looking ahead. Some organizations think that this could be a problem though it they are adapted to display text messages or emails. Of course there is an adjusting period for maybe a day. When you first drive a vehicle with HUD you will know that it is there, but as you get use to it you will just appreciate that useful information that will be visibly seen above the hood of the car. Not right in your line of sight, but right below it. In a BMW the display will show speed, cruise control settings, adaptive cruise control settings, tachometer, and navigation arrows.
European BMW have technology that will be able to read road signs and overhead signs. This will be convenient for displaying speed limits or possible road hazards. This has only been perfected in Europe because their road signs are much simpler.
What is your opinion on the Head Up Display. Do you think this will be a great technology added to your vehicle or will it be a horrible distraction for your driving?
