Heads-Up Display Technology Moves Beyond Luxury Vehicles

Tempe Auto Repair Have you been a little jealous of those cool heads-up displays in sports and luxury cars? You know, the one that let you monitor vehicle functions right in the windshield where you don't have to take your eyes off the road. Or maybe you've already been enjoying this perk in your current ride. According to an article over at Automotive News, they're now beginning to hit the mass market. Also, according to Edmunds.com, this year there are 38 US car models offer standard or optional heads-up displays. That's up from 13 models just five years ago. These displays project light onto the windshield, creating an image that appears just above the hood about five to eight feet beyond the windshield. They're quite useful for showing navigation routes, audio channels and other vehicle data. Some of the new displays can overlay a turn arrow on a street ahead, showing drivers exactly where to turn en route. There are still some financial challenges to offering this on more and more models, but several companies are stepping up to the plate to make it work. To read more on this click here.
