HUD display on 2011

Here’s the first video of the 2011 Camaro heads up display (HUD) function being started up and cycled through. The Camaro HUD startup features a very cool bowtie / Camaro graphic being displayed. It then quickly displays the default views — a speedometer with digital needle and speed readout, a speed readout with outside temperature, or just simply a digital speed readout.
According to the list of HUD functions however, there should be even more programmable views, including
* Vehicle speed
* Tachometer
* Compass
* Outside air temperature
* Manual Paddle Shift Gear Indicator (if equipped)
* OnStar Turn-by-Turn
* Audio functions
* Phone information
* Selected gear
* Turn signal indicators
* High-beam indicator signal
* Vehicle messages

That's all it does?? ... I really expected more for all the hype! Oh well, to each their own, but I wouldn't trade my 2SS in just to have that feature.

Basically, it just projects your speed ( and a few other small things ) on your window, but I would find it too distracting as I drive. I feel my eyes would be constantly drawn to it. I think the current dash board indicator is just fine for what I'm looking for and really wouldn't want to pay an extra $400 or so more for this. :iono:

Amazing! I wish I had it :( I miss it from my old GXPs...

slick rick 04-18-2010 02:13 PM

Cool

1CAMSS 04-18-2010 02:23 PM

Wow! that does look cool! can you see that when the sun is bright outside?

kga10734 04-18-2010 02:31 PM

Looks cool, but I can live without it.

Nice Ride bud...Love the plates...Should be getting mine next week...:headbang:

shevyman 04-18-2010 02:45 PM

well if that is all it does.. there is a company that has aftermarket that does that.
i can not remember the company but if i search i can find it. i think it was glowshift. so yeah for the extra 300 i think or more you can do that to your 2010. plus we have done a aduio setup in a mercedes that projects the movie or screen on the windshield. we put the double din monitor in the dash like the hud and it projected in a 8"x6" i think. forgot the size.

slick rick 04-18-2010 03:25 PM

So is that a 2011 test mule? or a 2010 retrofitted with HUD?

2011 #00002 i think.

HUD is nice!

ViperTomcat 04-18-2010 03:39 PM

About what I was expecting..basically the same as on a Corvette.

wullger 04-18-2010 03:52 PM

Definitely not enough for me to have waited, or to think about trading in my 2010, but if it helps sell more cars, it's a win for GM.

ALLT4 04-18-2010 03:55 PM

Looks pretty damn distracting to me. No thanks, I'll drive like a man.

No that's not all it does. It also projects your tire pressure, mpg, onstar directions, odometer, and EVERYTHING else that the digital speedo displays as well as incoming calls.

freakin sic

Unfair 04-18-2010 05:10 PM

Pretty cool gadget, I could do without it.

TaylorRyanSS 04-18-2010 06:05 PM

Meh, kinda dumb imo I would not pay extra for this. I was expecting something more futuristic looking lol

Dave McFly 04-18-2010 06:10 PM

LOVE the startup sequence :thumbsup:

Like I already mentioned to higher sources - I think this would be a good OPTION for the 2LT and 2SS....but don't add it to the trim level (it has to cost SOMETHING....). If someone isn't interested in it, don't make them pay for it.

Chemical 04-18-2010 06:33 PM

I found the car that drove up more interesting than the HUD.

Oh well, if it comes with it then it comes with it.

1badSS/RS 04-18-2010 07:33 PM

:thumbsup::thumbup:

JJChevy 04-18-2010 08:06 PM

Was a little disappointed at first that I didn't have this on my 2010, now after seeing it, don't care so much anymore. Cool "toy," but glad I didn't wait.
