"Toy" about sums it up. I actually like looking down at the gauge cluster(s).
Even if it was offered as an optional feature.. I wouldn't bother.

My wife has this on her new 2010 Buick LaCrosse CXS. We both like it. It's cool to see the name of the song appear when the song changes. Yeah, I wouldn't trade in my 2010 in (# 7992) just to have this but ...again, we like it.

Isn't this your video tribone? I found what looks like the same video on another site that doesn't give you any credit, if that's the case. No wonder I don't go there often...

What a crock of crap!

Everyone cried like a little girl when the camaro arrived with out HUD. Now everyone is crying like a little girl because HUD came out.

One member on here was pretty critical of HUD when he saw the actual configuration, but when shown the video of the original example of HUD in a promotional video (prior to the car even coming out) he thought it was cool. What are the differences?....it looks the same to me.

I completely agree it needs to be an OPTION! But I just don't see how people can be so disappointed in something they were so passionate about the car not having when it was released. Based on the description of what HUD displays I don't think there is a lot more they can display. It shows useful and meaningful data to HELP YOU DRIVE.

DISCLAIMER: I realize not everyone who has posted was around when the HUD was first discussed, and vice versa.

When I test drive the 2011 2SS, I will give a full report.

Do we have standard package prices on the 2LT and 2SS from both years to compare how much the HUD is adding to the 2011?

Are there really people out there that will absolutely NOT buy a 2LT/2SS due to the HUD addition? If so, wouldn't a dealer be inspired to work something out?

I think it is a great addition to an already awesome line-up of toys for the 2SS, which is what we are going to order.

That goes for most things, but I don't see how you can forget about something that's right there in front of you that you use every time you drive. It may have lost it's "WOW" effect but it's still useful and handy right?

The wow does wear off, but you don't know how much you really use it until it's gone!
Years ago I had a Buick Ultra with HUD and auto dimming mirrors.... and I wish I still had those options on my current car! I'll wait for the 2011 to get both of those back!

I have the HUD in my vette and just love it. I can't wait to get a 2001 Camaro.
Once you have driven with the HUD for a while and go to a car that does not have the HUD, you wish you were driving the car with the HUD

The HUD is not distracting at all.

Im not a HUD person. My wife loves it in our acadia. First thing i do when i get in it i turn it off. Sure wouldnt sell my ride just for that feature. Until the Z28 comes out nothing to do but wait for an upgrade for your new camaro.

I know I would like to see it on the 2012 convertible. When I have my GPS on the dash the speed displayed is helpful but I don't think it would be any more distracting then tuning a radio or adjusting climate control.

i would like to see work while the rpm is in motion. I would like the HUD if i could be added to my 2010 wouldn't trade my car in. I would trade my car in for a z28.


The reason why I am interested in hud is because the way I sit, and the low wheel position setting i prefer the top rpm 5/7k are kinda hard for me to see unless i tilt my head down. So having the hud is not a bad idea, but I got use to just tilting my head.

its not haters its just current owners trying to justify reasons they don't need it....but secretly wish they had the feature

i mean i'm sure they aren't to unhappy they got the camaro a year before 2011 owners...fair trade-off

I like the way the black car convieniently pulls up so you can see it.

Let's see some video of it working with the car driving around.

YEah I am part way there to upgrading mine, I just hope it's not too difficult.

Same hear I can see the instrument panel very well with the way I sit and position everything.

I downloaded iHUD it sucks :(, I also downloaded aSmartHUD and it is better but still not great but I'd rather have my phone someplace other than sitting on my Dash the whole time I am driving.
