Comes in Two Options

  • For Luxury Cars – 1000 $
  • For Standard Sedan – 400 $

Today, the market offers two main HUD options for cars:

  • To buy a new luxury car. There are more and more cars manufactured with built-in HUD displays. It is estimated that by 2020, 9% of all new cars will be equipped with HUD displays (currently it is just 4%). These HUDs have an excellent image quality and on-board computer integration. But they will cost you over $1,000 as an option.
  • To buy a portable HUD device. This is an aftermarket solution that can be purchased separately and simply placed before a driver’s eyes on the dashboard. This kind of device is often equipped with a display (or pico projector), sensors, special optics, and wires to connect to the car or just for charging. Although much cheaper than factory HUDs, these devices still cost about $400.

Technology

The crux is in the glass. It’s the main HUDWAY Glass component — a plastic lens, very lightweight and of low fragility, which means that cuts are unlikely even if it gets broken. The glass has an aspheric shape, which allows to get a 20% larger image while at the same time minimize spherical, comatic, and chromatic aberrations. In other words, when looking through the curved glass you still see the road as it is, with no distortions.

A thin multilayered glass coating is a “secret sauce” of HUDWAY Glass — and its important feature. Its main purpose is to enhance the reflective properties of the glass and preserve its transparency, so that your view of the road is never obstructed.
