Works really well, BUT, your maps/navigation software has to be capable of projecting a mirror image and Google Maps doesn't have this feature.
Impressed - a little
Whilst I like the simplicity of this 'tech', in that it reflects the phone screen to your view, that simplicity is too much when it comes to the documentation and instructions with the item. It took a little more research to understand what all the bits were for and then there's a load of possible software solutions that confused me further. I settled on the 'hudway' that was recommended. The display is simple. It's an aid to driving in difficult visibility conditions and so far I've used it in a test but not yet in anger.
Didn't work well
My cell phone is 5.7" and it was difficult to get the entire phone in the reflection plus, in daylight I could barely see the display. It came with additional reflective surfaces and items to install them but no instructions or why I would want to install them. It probably works well at night but I don't drive that much at night. Other than that, the product was as described. I have re-boxed it and it sits awaiting its fate.
Not totally impressed
After receiving the HUD device thought is would be a little different, hard to see the screen and it also highlights the whole mobile phone unlike the pictures used in the advertisment.
Vero nice
I have an old car without a Navigator; I solved the problem And i can use the item on all my car and moto. Thanks .
Decent HUD
The box arrived with the following parts an instruction card, which does not tell you everything, but with just a little thought you can work out what the parts may be for.
The easiest part is the HUD itself which comes with an ample sized cloth.
In the front of the box there is the stand and ball socket nut. The instruction card shows how this is fitted, but I found the best way was to partially screw the nut into the underside of the HUD unit then clip the half ball mount into this. I must say the tightening of the nut is fiddly, particularly when there is so little clearance under the unit when it is on the dash.
In a separate box, there is a spare reflective mirror a double sided mount sticker and a piece of wide smooth plastic strip, sticky on one side.
The strip to be useful for those who have dashboards that are not very good for sticking small footprint articles to them like the adjustable base of the HUD. My own dashboard is such, that it has a matt crinkle type finish which looks effective, but is terrible for sticking anything to it. The plastic strip is a boon in this case, allowing a large surface error to stick to, with a smooth top to allow the foot print to be stuck down. The double sided mount sticker, could of course be used to give more height clearance under the bracket when it is on a slope.
Not a bad unit, just a few minor gripes, As has been said the reflection onto the screen and the bracket for the top reflective screen could have been made to be raised to at least the thickness of most mobile phones, so that the mirror surface was level with the top of the phone when laid down.
Good but...
Works very well but, at night, shows reflection on device and also projected on windscreen. During the day the silver hinges also reflect on windscreen, these would be better black. Device comes with a number of additional parts with no explanation of what these are for. Overall I am very pleased with the functionality apart from the comments above.
