Once limited to fighter jets, head-up displays (or HUDs) are now becoming fairly common in sporty and luxury cars. When traveling at 60 miles per hour your car may travel 80 feet during a quick check of traditional instruments. HUDs normally use bright LEDs or backlit displays to project a mirrored image onto a specially coated part of the windshield, allowing the driver to see the reflection as they look ahead, without having to take their eyes off the road.
The Buick head-up display uses a lens on the driver’s side of the instrument panel that can be adjusted vertically for easy viewing. The full color HUD can also be adjusted for brightness, and includes four views featuring Speed, Audio/Phone, Navigation, and Performance. You can also configure the display to show a Tachometer, Collision Alert information, Cruise Control status, Lane Departure Warnings, and Low Fuel information.
