Quick search for HUD on Amazon ... I'd never heard of them, but those utilizing the OBD could be useful, or at least entertaining!

Notice the new CX-5 iActiveSense offers road sign recognition ... e.g., Moose Crossing Ahead :)

P.S. Be careful on Amazon you don't order a Paul Newman!

I think DashCommand or OBD Fusion (or one of the other smartphone apps) has a HUD mode so you can achieve the same goal with that plus a Bluetooth OBD-II adapter.

Thanks mate, I have seen the smart phone versions but would prefer a fixed dedicated unit. There are two types I have seen, GPS only and OBD2 connection, the latter can display probably too much information, the main thing I am interested in is accurate vehicle speed. Have just been looking at a GPS unit for $69 AUD.

Agree with you on the OBD & too much info ... even on the tech-crazy Prius the tendency was to look at all the data once ... then settle on one or two readouts and forget it.

But I do like the i-Activesense HUD readout for the adaptive cruise control.
