If you’re in the market for a new car, it is likely that manufacturers and car salespeople will try to sway you with information and explanations about the latest technical upgrades. Many focus on safety, such as proximity sensors and back up cameras. However, the newest upgrades are created to make driving and following directions easier.
With that, some new cars include a display that can help drivers see icons on their windshields. Essentially, images from the dashboard or a navigational system would appear driver’s line of sight so that their eyes do not leave the road. These displays are called “heads up displays” or HUDs. They are available on the Mercedes Benz E-Class, the BMW 5 Series and a host of other luxury vehicles.
