The Best Hud For Car Review and Buying Guide 2019

Before talking about the top 10 Best Hud For Car, I need to stop for a moment. I need to share some memories with you as a result when I saw Head-Up Displays (HUDs) for the first time.

In my video library, I keep the trilogy of Back To The Future (1985, 1989, and 1990) for the genius Steven Spielberg and Michael J. Fox. I used to watch it from time to time. I have kept the trilogy since it was on old videotapes before the revolution of computer CDs and Internet revolutionary evolution and updated it to a BluRay copy to keep it clear and High Definition as much as possible.

You may agree with me when you were excited about the second part of this trilogy and especially the journey to the future; our tomorrow land. How will the future look like? This is the question that many writers talked about and produced a lot of books whether it is plain scientific books or sci-fi novels.

So, I used to watch this trilogy (and many movies about the future, in fact) to compare the talent of these writers and actual reality. Believe me when I tell you: it is the best and you should try and compare by yourself.

Best Head UP display For Cars Buying Guide

What is HUD (heads up display) Exactly?

HUD is the abbreviation of the Heads UDisplay. It is a new technology to see and deal with road and driving data in front of your eyes in your car without the need of leaving the steering wheel or look at another side.

The required data is viewed in a transparent way onto the windshield of a car as a digital transparent image. (Sometimes the HUDs works using retractable combiner instead of Windshield). It views the same information that is displayed on the dashboard.

HUDs are the normal update of Apple CarPlay Stereo and its brothers. With HUD products you needn’t look at other sides, your concentration will be completely on the driving road.

Why I should buy a Car Hud for my car?

There are many reasons to own such a device. If you are a technology geek, you needn’t my explanation of why you should buy HUDs. It is incredibly awesome to see your driving instructions and personal activities (like calling and messaging) showing through a transparent shield that doesn’t block or disperse your vision/concentration among many displays. That’s really cool.

But if you want to organize some benefits in bullets, HUD is important because:

  • Safe Concentration: Calculate how many objectives that may disperse your concentration (radio, calls, messages, emails, dashboard, maps, temperature and more). HUDs keep your eyes on the road while driving. Its name comes from making your head up, not left, right, or even on the steering wheel panel.
  • Easier: HUD products use a handful of hand movements to control, plus all orders are available by audio assistants like Siri of an iOS phone. Imagine, you answer your incoming calls by just moving your hand from left to right in front of your face. It is easy peasy.
  • Lesser Accidents: Most of the accidents are happened because of the first reason: lack of Concentration. When you find all the required data to deal with in front of your eyes, this will be a vital factor to reduce the number of road accidents.
  • All in One Solution: You want to make many things while you are driving your car. You want to know the road and traffic data, answer and make calls, respond to messages, check your direction, and more. HUDs offer these features in one device and more.
  • Compatible with your phone: Whatever your phone operating system type is (Android or iOS), HUDs works with both of them.

How to Choose The Best HUD for your Car

Take my recipe and you will not feel sorry anymore for choosing wrong brands or make mistakes. It is easy 3 steps to follow:

  • Check your car’s year of manufacture and make sure that is newer than 2004 and comes with OBD2.
  • Check compatibility with your phone (to reduce dispersion).
  • Check your budget.

Final Thoughts: Best Heads Up Display for Cars

Following such steps may save your time and help you to choose the right option of the list of The top 10 HUDs for a car.
