Seeking more info on HUDs

I have done some research online already.

The reason I am looking at them is that in bright sunlight I have a problem for my iris to adjust from brightness to the lower light level on both my instrument cluster and the Samsung Galaxy which hosts our Satnav system, without taking my eyes off the road for too long. OH has to keep telling me the readings.

The MH is a N&B Arto with a very big windscreen about a metre in front of the wheel and large sidescreens. We reduce sunlight reflection off the dash from all directions with cloths spread on the dash.

I would like to do wireless transmission of the satnav data onto the HUD and in a 2003 vehicle we do not have OBD2 nor in-built satnav. We have no need for phone ability on the HUD as we have another Samsung for calls.

From my research so far I think that a system with its own screen would be better than one projecting onto the windscreen.

So far I have found 2 systems that fit the above -

Navdy

Which seems to be the RR, but I cannot find the price, except with an integrated Satnav which we do not need.

Kivic

Does much the same but is cheaper, but cannot find a supplier.




I would welcome comments on my thinking so far and any suggestions about other systems to fit the criteria.

Does anyone know of knowledgable suppliers, either in MH arena or otherwies? Does Eddievanbitz do them? Or Adam at motorhomewifi? Anyone else?

Just get a decent (Garmin) large screen stand alone sat nav and stick it right in front of you Geoff.

It still requires one to adjust one's focal length, needing an iris reduction.


Wheras the HUDs set the text at a focal length near infinity, where one's eye is focused when looking at the road ahead, so little adjustment required.


I wish we had HUDs in our aircraft on a bright day.

I bought an earlier version of this from Amazon for about £50

It just projects the GPS speed on the windscreen and can be adjusted to match Speedo rather than true GPS speed

Or one of these for much less money. I bought an ex driving school car “He-Man” HUD Speedo off eBay, brilliant bit of kit, especially when abroad as it will show KPH so no need to keep thinking “What’s 70Kph in MPH.”

Its not the destination that matters.

It's who you share the journey with (even if like me, it’s in a caravan!)
I am very fortunate to have Mrs Plodd to share mine with

Ray thanks.


I have been looking at Hudway but U think that one is just a display of a smartphone placed on the dash..


I have looked at a Hudway that picks up on a smartphone Bluetooth, but cannot find a supplier.
