Does the Camaro H.U.D. system have the G-meter like the 'vette's ?

might look distracting... but trust me.. once you get used to HUD you feel something is missing without it.. makes driving much easier.

no need to look down..

nice. that one shows a lot more info - its really tightly clustered together though and would be better if it could be spread out -- might have to start thinking on how to make my own H.U.D lol...

It was reading 6 mph at a full stop... Plus, major battery killer. Don't think I could be comfortable driving around always worrying that my phone was going to slide out the window...

If it comes standard, I'll probably disable mine. I don't need the distraction. It isn't going to hurt me to look down at my gauge cluster. People have been doing that for 100 years. It looks cool, but it isn't for me. Plus, flashing lights and things like that give me horrible migraines. No thanks. Make it an OPTION!

I'm curious, people who say this have they actually driven a vehicle with a HUD?

It's not distracting at all IMHO.

Its obvious that some of you guys never had a HUD in any of your prior cars. Once you had it, you never want to do without it. I can keep my eyes on the road all the time without me having to look down to check my speed

[QUOTE=RetroDude;1735162]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.

I agree....I don't mind it but wouldn't want to pay extra for it. I'll keep my current SS!

It's like some people in here have been living in a cave (or a 69 Camaro trunk) for the past decade or so Guys, what did you expect? This is EXACTLY what GM has been putting in their cars all over the lineup for years and years. You thought they'd just completely reinvent the wheel for the 2011 Camaro? Come on.

First off, you can't judge the size or location by a video of it. The angles are all off unless you're behind the wheel. Then it's in the right place and the right size (unless you were expecting that ridiculous car identification HUD). It's also FAR less distracting than you would think. When we test drove Acadias back in 07, we tested one with HUD and I also thought (from the pics / description) that it would be both gimmicky and distracting. While it's definitely redundant, I found it to be very useful and not at all distracting, which was a shock. In fact, by the end of the nearly 1 hour test drive, it felt completely natural and just part of the instrument cluster. When we bought our Acadia, ours didn't have the HUD and my very first instinct was to look for info there... it felt incomplete! I'm not saying anyone NEEDS a HUD, but I am saying that anyone who gets it will find it useful and will probably love it, even if they didn't think they would.

A few random HUD shots from 2007 Acadias:




Finally, if this really isn't enough info for you, GM is apparently working on a next gen HUD system, targetting somewhere around 2018 model years - http://news.yahoo.com/s/livescience/...playtechnology

Doesn't grab me. It would be nice to have it user configurable including colors.
I personally would have a line across the lower edge of the the windshield showing:

MPH.....(small graph for RPM).....Current gear.....Audio info

I think it is a nice feature. U have to see it in person to see how it is. And I think you could turn it on and off. Everybody has there own taste. I want to see it in person.

It's distracting? How many people here have driven with portable navigation systems stuck to their windshields and been fine?

Sure, the HUD display is right in front of you, but all it takes is a quick glance down and your line of sight is still the road ahead considering how you can see straight through the display.
