I like it.

Thought it was a targeting device in the start-up mode!

Sorry George, that was simply a stock photo I had from a prototype camaro. The "SS" on the fuel guage is not available on any production 2010's as far as I know.

I agree with some of the comments made by otheres. Cool gadget, but I'm totally satisfied with my 2010 2SS and that ain't enough for me to even consider getting rid of my '10 for a '11.

Great point, I agree

Meh, I wasn't excited about the HUD before the 2011 changes were announced and I'm still not impressed.

Yeah im just not a fan of it, everyone really talked it way way up more than what it really is lol, its not that it does display this massive assortment of items its that it can display any of those items, but the catch is just one at a time...im not digging it, id delete that option on mine cause id never use it and id get annoyed at this akward projector implanted in what would otherwise be a beautiful dash
...thumb down for me, its not at all what everyone made it sound like

The position of it can be adjusted, or it certainly was able to be in the Z06 that Eric Hall showed me before I decided to order a 2011 2SS/RS.

It looked pretty neat to me, but then I've never had a car with a HUD.

OH MY GOD !!! THAT IS AWESOME from what I understand you cant get this installed in a 2010 camaro cuz its the windshield and the projector. This is just such a cool thing to have be in the car.

well.. unfortunately - even though i would love a HUD in my car and on the 5th gen i am going to buy...

I find this unimpressive. The vette one was way better in the 97 I saw - and this is just kinda... "meh". Not to rag on the General - I'm usually telling people not to take things so harshly and to wait..but I really hope they do more than just a flash-in-the-pan kind of thing.

The HUD would be way more useful if it showed you speed and tach / gas at the same time, the way a fighter pilot gets to see multiple objects in his view on a HUD..

Ala:


distractions aside - that is a lot more useful than just a single gagdet that I would have t o flip through. Part of my job as a Web Developer is to think about Interaction Design and I think that - while this is "cool" - it would provide one more distraction to get me into an accident as I find the "knob" to flip the display around to the desired control. Why not just put tach/gas/oil in the corners of the hub and use little lines drawn on the screen coming at you to simulate speed with a 000 readout below it. would give you a more functional display and allow for a safer experience - being that you wouldnt have to flip through the menu to get what you want and also alerting you and giving you more of an idea of your actual speed without having to glance at a number on the dash or stare at a number in front of you (they already do this in some areas with white lines painted on the road)

Just a thought...

I love it. My parents Acadia has a HUD and it's great. Im just as much of a man driving with it as I am without it BTW...

I have to replace my windshield anyway, (which I am told is a requirement to retrofit this into the 2010) So I've got that part taken care of. I just hope the HUD unit itself is not too expensive. I look forward to having this. It would be cool if you could change the color of it too.

The problem is too many people standing in the way saying "it cant be done". If you are going to make a glass screen + a digital hookup to the ECM display various data with the flip of a button theres no reason you cant have all the data display at the same time -- you are already investing the time / effort / technology - you simply need to make that feature an option and make it a good option. The lines on the screen illustrating the speed + the MPH reading might be a little futuristic, but would make the HUD way more worth the money they are going to charge for such an option.

Here is the Corvette HUD as of 2006:

It's not "beef" - its a opinion.
(Not trying to hate or flame or anything - i'm not that kind of guy)

The video only shows some info, even if its everything they say it'll have, that's not the issue. The issue is that the information appears to be user controlled -- in other words it displays certain things but only if you push a button to switch between them, thus introducing distraction while driving.

I think this is a good start but, it would be safer if GM just displayed all of the information at once - in one place - that isn't in the absolute center of the drivers vision - that you have to stare past - but rather on the outside corners, and was designed a little better graphically in terms of appearance. I think its a good concept, just the execution is lacking

ah gotcha no problem with an opinion or a beef, LOL I was sorry if it came across wrong (I can see why) I just was curious what you saw that was different. I bet you can control what is seen on a single screen. But I guess time will tell.

If they design it so that one of the options is to display all the info at once without pushing buttons i would be all over this! like you said, only time will tell and all we can do is hope!

cheers!
