Update Your Car with a $30 Heads-Up Display

Heads-up displays are undeniably cool, and they also make driving much safer.


Every carmaker from Chevrolet to Rolls-Royce uses heads-up displays in their cars now. Not only is it a safe way to provide drivers with key information, like current speed and navigation routes, without them taking their eyes off the road, but it’s a damn cool piece of tech. But since the factory HUDs available in cars now are built right into the dash, they’re relatively difficult to retrofit to a new or classic car. Now, there’s a cheap and easy solution: the Mpow Universal Head Up Display.

The Mpow’s HUD is a simple design that places your smartphone flat, and working in conjunction with the HUD app open on your phone, reflects the image from the screen, directly into the your line of sight. Information such as vehicle speed, engine speed, navigation and speeding warnings are all reflected vividly on a glass display that has a 20-nanometer-thick coating of chromium but still maintains transparency. You’re making your car safer while feeding your Top Gun fantasies. It’s a win-win.
